colors of seasons

John Weeks explains how he views nature as art and compares it to a painting. He describes how it changes throughout the day and how the height of the sun is key to the "perfect picture." The height of the sun and the presence or lack of clouds create different hues of colors and shadows that create contrast.

John Weeks talks about the approaching fall season and the summer sunlight cycle. He discusses the relationship between the sun and plants and how that changes as we go through the different seasons.
