With the coming autumn comes the changing of the leaves, which can be stunningly beautiful in many places.
ExploreAshville.com has created a page that explores The Science Behind Fall Color and makes great use of Google Earth to do it.
While the main fly-through was created largely using Google Earth, they also did a lot of post-processing on it so you’re unable to view it directly in Google Earth. However, the Asheville Convention & Visitors Bureau created a YouTube video that shows the imagery and is quite awesome:
Their site does a great job of discussing much more about how and why the leaves change colors, and I highly recommend you check it out at www.exploreasheville.com/science-behind-fall-color/
A big thanks to GEB reader ‘Cat’ for letting us know about it!
