Leaves in water
Autum and rain means puddles and water-filled containers -- which in turn fill with leaves. It can be tricky to get photos of it, though, as the water surface both makes it hard for the camera to focus and it reflects light so you might end up with a photo of the blue sky rather than the submerged leaves you see with your naked eye.
When it freezes, the leaves are captured in the ice. That too can be very beautiful.
I made an altered version of one of photos too, adding textures and a discreet frame, but I'm not sure it did that much to improve the photos...
