Looking again at these photos....

Spectacular fall foliage can be on a street near you, or from a trip you take in the fall specifically to see the fall foliage.

Fall is also a time when there is rain and there can be rainbows just across the street, but still with fall foliage. If the sun comes out after a fall rain, look for the rainbows and position them in your photo where you want to capture them.

A mountainside with varied fall colors is always inviting the viewer to imagine walking there, even climbing up a hill.

Views from different angles become even more inviting with a stream running through the foliage, and be sure to take views from slightly different angles so you can choose the one you prefer later on. You can't ever go back to get what you once saw but didn't snap.

Another advantage of multiple photos of a scene, is that you may later find out there is an object in the photo which spoiled what you thought was a perfectly good photo. Having an alternate view of the scene you wanted to capture will save the photo.

This days of digital cameras with copious microchips, snap away. Unlike the days when only professional photographers could afford seemingly endless film and the developing of hundreds of photos, today the average photographer can snap almost endlessly, save the wanted photos and remove the rest to free up space for hundreds more.

Sometimes an individual tree can offer a variety of colors. Sometimes you will want to feature just the bright color of the foliage alone, or show the whole tree which created the gorgeous foliage.

Fall is a time like no other, and the beauty can be all around you, from the street where you live, your own backyard, or that special trip made for visual memories and the photo reminders.

Enjoy the season again this year, and every fall hereafter.

I love the colours of the Autumn and never cease to take photos. There is nothing like the rich colours on the turning trees. They are warm, vibrant and give us a taste of sunshine even when it's gone. The variety is breath-taking. Every time Autumn comes around I say it's my favourite time of year but then Spring eventually arrives with all its promise and that's my favourite time. I suppose I just love it all!

Lovely photos.

Dear Ann, Thanks for your from the heart take on Autumn. Just as with people, there is something of value in each season when we examine them and gain a real understanding.

Great photos. Our fall hasn't fallen yet here in the South, so I'll just enjoy yours. The one with the rainbow is very pretty, as are all of them.

MsB - When fall foliage arrives in your area of Arkansas, I trust you may have a chance to share a photo or two we can find awesome.

aviannovice - I fully believe that you, of all Hubbers, needed no reminder.
