Indian summer in Russia. Forest on the coast: the leaves become red and yellow and then fell down.

"An Indian Summer is a meteorological phenomenon that occurs in November or later, in the Northern Hemisphere."
Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The weather is warm and sunny, the leaves on the trees have turned or fallen but there is no snow cover on the ground. 'Indian summer' is supposed to end at November 11, St. Martin's day, so in former times in Europe 'Indian summer' was called 'Saint Martin's Summer'.
In British English the phrase "Saint Martin's Summer" was used until the American term Indian Summer became better known in the 20th century.
In Eastern Europe there is an analogue of 'Indian Summer' - Babye Leto (It means Woman's Summer). But this meteorological phenomenon occurs in September, when there are still many green leaves on the trees and only a few leaves are yellow or red.
