This new puzzle captures the enchanting beauty of the fall season in a serene woodland setting. Based on a watercolor with graphite painting by Auguste Allonge, the image featured in today's game depicts a serene autumn landscape in the forest of Fontainebleau (a French town and commune in the metropolitan area of Paris, France). In this late autumn landscape, the forest stands in the final stages of its seasonal transformation, with most trees having shed their leaves. The once-vibrant foliage has given way to a more skeletal and barren appearance, as the forest floor is now carpeted with a thick layer of fallen leaves.Image Credit: Auguste Allonge, Courtesy National Gallery of Art, Washington
