    Absolutely GORGEOUS! That is a stunning contrast between the earth, the trees, and the sky! I love this time of year! Great pic!

    WOW!!! Not much color change here yet,though about 5 blocks NE of me there's an older medium sized Hard Maple in front yard of old apartment building that's almost 50/50 deep red/green.Because of the stress from record heat & drought earlier in summer lots are turning early and/or dropping.

    Beautiful pic! I love autumn! Not much changing here yet, but it is quite cool at night. Hopefully the leaves are gone before the snows arrive. Last year was a disaster.

    Sweet chickens.....you live in the US and the change has progressed that far already? We have barely any change so far and I am quite further north...what altitude are you located at?

    I live at 6200'. The picture was taken at 7600'. Color came early this year, and in many places it was pretty dull because of the drought. This place (Lake Fork - 39°51'20.02"N 111°25'17.02"W For you google earth fans) has been pretty good though!

    All the trees here are changed, many don't have leaves anymore. I cut my lawn today for probably the last time. Will have snow on the ground in under a month anyhow.

    Awesome! I'm going to steal it and put it as the wallpaper on the PC that I have connected to the HDTV in my home office that I use for web streaming and shared presentations.

    Should look great on that big hi Res screen!

    Beautiful shot...What kind of camera/lens are you using?? Did you adjust the color/contrast/brightness etc. afterward??

    That should be a post card, nice work!

    Nikon D40 (vivid) 18-55 lens. 2 shots for the foilage, 1 for the sky, to get better exposure of the blue color. Stitched together, brightness/contrast/vibrance adjusted. It looks a little oversaturated on my work monitor, but better on my laptop. If I was going to print it I'd probably dial it back a hair. Still, the colors are really that bright right now.

    Beautiful, thanks for sharing it with us :).
    Wish it was like that over here, we have had grey skies and non stop rain for 3 days.

    Ok... not as good of lighting, but I've been meaning to take a pic of this barn for a long time. Storm was moving in tonight. (5 picture panorama)
