Why do leaves change color?

I was looking through some old photos last weekend and stumbled upon one I took two years ago at Great Falls National Park, on the Virginia side. Now that was a beautiful fall. But last fall, because of some unusually wet and warm weather, the leaves to pretty much went from green to brown. I thought, what makes leaves change color anyway? Thankfully some people have already figured this out for me.
