In autumn Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk turns into many-colored carpet. You may say that it’s an ordinary thing. Red rowan can be found in many other cities. Yes, it’s so, but in the light of sunset maples, birches and rowans appear in such a rampage of brightness that you can’t help but taking out your mobile phone to chase the beauty slipping away. A worried face of a citizen hurrying home from work changes by a smile and a dreamy sight when he recollects the past summer. There’s a special contrast which appears together with the first snow lying in the neighboring mountains or a fog falling all at once.
