I am in awe of how the late summer/early fall, warm, low sunlight can change a plain scene into a multidimenstional picture: very emotional, daydream-evoking, beautiful in the simplest and yet the most striking way. Obvioulsy, it can go all wrong - those are the cheesy shots of people running through fields and holding hands amidst golden leaves. Yet, that kind of natural light brings out all the layers and plays with the qualities of a subject, shifting the picture far from flat or boring. It's not just in photography; I love this scene just because of how aesthetically pleasing to the eye it is, all thanks to that sunset palette. The saturation, warmth of colors has something universally comforting to it. Impressionists went crazy for it, and therefore I see no reason not to do the same.
