    I searched and was surprised I couldn't find a thread related to this, maybe I'm missing it. Either way, shooting fall is one of my favorite times. Although stuff is just now starting to change, the sumac trees here change early and I went to my favorite park last weekend to grab some shots. I plan on getting out a lot in the next weeks. So, northern hemisphere, show us what you've got! :)

    Everything in Texas is dead from heat waves, droughts, and huge fires.... No pretty fall for me. Well go straight to hideous ugly dead looking oak trees from this. Lol

    I love Fall in New England, but it also means my furnace is downstairs staring at the oil tank....

    Nice set, Zach.

    We're just starting to see fall colors here in CT. Some smaller bushes, more than the larger trees... here's one:

    Well, maybe you don't, but up in Minnesota, it comes earlier than most of the country :)

    Also looking forward to taking some trips north in the coming weekend.

    Shot this leaf recently. Not sure if its disease or normal fall decay.

    I'm torn about Fall - it is my favorite season because nature puts out quite a show of colors unlike any other, but it also means that (yes, Ned Stark) Winter is coming.

    I was so absorbed by the collapse of the Red Sox that I forgot I have to plan our annual Fall Colors trip! Thanks to Zach for starting this thread!

    I love this time of year. Our town is getting ready for the "Apple Harvest Festival" this coming week. We picked some this past weekend along with a pumpkin. The foliage hasn't started yet but I think it will be glorious here in the North East this year.
    Cheers
