    Things are starting to turn in mid-New England.

    Post your pics in this thread......here's one from the Drone of our little town with the colors just starting.

    Jake, sometimes you can't tell whether a pic is taken from a drone or not....like this one I took today with a hand held! I've starting to think the drones are best on flatter land where you can't get the higher views.
    Again, colors just starting...

    Question . . . in the first pic . . . to the left . . . there is an area with clearly marked areas of lighter green and darker green which results in an odd shape and design. What is this?

    We went leaf peeping in the Adirondacks last week and we're heading down towards the Catskill today. It's been a nice fall.

    Heck if I know. I saw that too and thought it looked like min-corn maze or mini-ski trails (no way!)....I'll take a gander when I am out and about today.

    My guess is 200 feet - over a town park and sports fields where no one was present.....I try to fly safe. This is also a "toy" drone which weighs in the ounces as opposed to the pounds...

    We don't get the stunning forest displays of foliage that the east does, but there are some really nice trees changing right now.

    We drove way up to Littleton NH to drop stuff off at a gallery yesterday- they are past peak, but there's still some nice color along the river. What a great town.

    Wow. Those are some nice pictures!
    Here's a couple that were taken 2 weeks ago.The area is near the end of the Appalachian mountains in Eastern Quebec (30 mins from my place).

    Our little weekend place. Lake Huron beach is about 100 yards down the drive.

    Nothing spectacular but I just saw this Cooper's Hawk sitting on the garden post. He waited there long enough for me to snap a picture of him. Not the best shot, it is cropped quite a bit and blown up because he was actually about 100ft away.

    More fall colors, in Seattle and in our foggy garden. The euonymous are particularly colorful this year. I think I'm going to add some more to the yard.

    I've always known it's about the sun angle - but look at that one drone shot with the sun hitting the trees - the colors look like rust! Another angle and it might look like Gold. I'm gonna try again today! So far this morning almost no wind.
