    Not much of note to see yet in Texas. It's coming though, you can definitely feel it outside.

    wfooshee - (gonna miss the butterflies flitting past when scrolling the first page :D) - I know what you mean about that bright yellow - I swear, it seems like the trees light up sometimes, all by themselves.

    Autumn is a real challenge to any photographer - a short, sharp, sweet challenge that is thrown down and then disappears if you don't grab your camera and get out fast enough to meet the challenge. That bright yellow is so hard to get unless you find the leaves soaking in the sunshine, and then one has to find just the right angle.. . .
    I'm still trying . . . :D

    - first off, nice shot as usual, and I have to agree with Minty. If I had yelled out 'Let there be Peace!' then that is the reality that would have materialised before me. Are you on some kind of hillock or a rooftop?


    Minty - Nice shots! Moar! Do you even need an excuse to take photos? :tup: Thanks for axing the X's. :)
    #3 really gets me - very evocative of the soporific nature of sunshine, and fields, and autumn trees.

    Show is almost over. We'll have to wait another year for the repeat.​

    I took a walk around my neighborhood this morning (Nov 24,) and shot what I could find that could be called Fall color. We don't get much here in north Florida, and what we get is quite a bit later than what most of you see. I used a circular polarizer on most of these, pretty much just to play with it.

    Great close-ups, and love the petrol-head shots. Fall is for long fall drives - I've heard of people whp actually fly to various famous locations known as great 'Fall Drives' some spanning several hundred miles in length with the most spectacular views that we can ever witness.

    Fall is one of the 'unexplainables'. Even the most smug scientists can only come up with the usual 'educated guesses'.

    Went to the park today and just as the light started getting nice my camera battery died. On the walk back to the car the light started getting really good so I pulled out the phone and got some off before it dies as well. I think this is the best park in Seattle.

    Nice pics everyone, I once upon a time had an entry level DSLR (fixed lens) but I when I was in the navy the ship vibrations and the camera in my rack jogged the lens loose :(
    Now, I've got a nice Canon Powershot A2500, with a whopping 5X optical zoom!
    It's not the best, but I did get this last Monday (technically not winter yet, stupid northeast weather!)

    Great camera to enjoy. Winter is almost done here (officially over - but Nature of course ignores our wordy labels for her performances) and there is still snow, not a primrose in sight. I'm impatient to see the tulips sprout again, and the lilacs burst into bloom, and I'm looking forward to more gardening this year than the last.

    Talking about Fall . . . what's happening in Australia? Haven't you guys just begun Autumn? Do you actually have a fall that is noticeable? I'm familiar with Frangipani, Hibiscus, and so on - but have never seen them shed their leaves.

    Been a great Fall this year; the autumnal glory was spectacular. Didn't get much shooting done, since life seems to get busier, faster, more hectic every day. But, on occasion, a moment is given, if not to stop and smell the roses, at least to stop and stare . . . and even fish the camera out to capture a moment that will all turn to dust only too soon.
