Autumn Color through the Eye of a Camera
Autumn in America is a beautiful time of year. I have experienced the beauty of autumn in many parts of America and each has it's own special glory.
I have seen the beautiful colors of a cool crisp autumn in Maine, the spectacular Aspens in Colorado and some wonderful colors throughout Tennessee and Kentucky. In the fall of 2008 we visited Michigan and I was able to capture some of the beautiful colors with my camera. My home state of Missouri is also a beautiful area to enjoy autumns' splendor.
I hope you enjoy this pictorial view of autumn in America.
