I love the colours in this image, Sergey!
The blue of the house combines particularly well with the yellow leaves.

On both of the large trees, the bark is lighter on the lower part of the trunks than it is elsewhere. Do you know why this is so?

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

On the side of highways in India, they would paint the lower 5 feet or so of the trees white to make them more visible under headlights at night and help mark the edges of the road (India has some of the highest road fatalities per passenger mile). I wonder if is something similar.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

In our country, the trees painted white in order to not eat wood insects.

The main objective of whitening trunks - is to protect the bark from sunburn (light reflected from the snow), slowing the dissolution of kidney, icing protection. And then later on wintering insects on the tree bark and the purpose of plugging cracks in the bark. If the tree is growing in the country, the whitewashing of its bitterness will make unsuitable bark for food hares, beavers and other gnawing.

Whitewashing is done at a height of 1.5-2 meters and to a depth of 4-5 cm below the soil level (gently otgresti land, whiten and sprinkle back after drying).

For the treatment of wood used lime mortar. In an extreme case, you can take a water-based paint. It transmits oxygen and water washable.

I absolutely love the light in that one, Sergey! It's about as soft as you can get, and still have it be specular (not diffused) light. I guess it's actually specular light that has been diffused to a great degree, but is still specular. However you want to describe it, it makes for extremely beautiful photos!
