This scene seems more like an art installation than an accident. The heat wave in London caused these early autumn leaves to stick on the non-slip section of the road. It makes me think of the Land Art artists who would use landscapes and nature in their work, similar to the work of Christo and Jeane-Claude.

Leaves stick to the road on Oct. 5 in London. A combination of late Summer high temperatures and an early fall of leaves onto a sticky non-slip section of road tarmac created a leafy collage.
