Autumn Beauty

Updated on September 13, 2014

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.

Do you like Fall? - stop by a vote

I love the cool, crisp days of fall. They are a relief after the long hot days of summer.

Grape Leaf in Michigan - fall color in Michigan

This photo of a grape leaf was taken in October in northern Michigan. The light reflecting among the grape vines gives a warm glow to the fall colors.

Brilliant Red Leaves - fall color in Missouri

These bright red leaves were photographed in the Missouri hillside near the town of Hermann.

Golden Yellow Autumn Leaves - fall in Tennessee

Pumpkins and Mums - autumn in Missouri

The autumn season also brings some wonderful fall produce. These pumpkins and mums were on sale at a roadside market.

Aspens in Colorado

The aspens in Colorado are a truly glorious site in the fall. I was able to experience their beauty several years ago when I was on a business trip. I wasn't able to photograph them like I'd like to, but I found this video to show you their glory.

Fall Display at the Missouri Botanical Gardens

The Missouri Botanical Gardens in St.Louis is a beautiful place to visit all year long, but the fall is one of my favorite times. Here you see a display of pumpkins at the gardens.

Autumn in America

These books will give you some more information on finding beautiful fall colors in America.

Bright Colored Autumn Leaves - fallen leaves in Michigan

This photo was taken during a hike in the woods. Colorful leaves had fallen among the wooded paths.

Autumn in Minnesota

Split Rock Lighthouse

For the autumn of 2012 we got our first views of the beautiful fall colors in Minnesota when we traveled up the north shore from Duluth to photograph lighthouses.


Fall Colors reflected on a Michigan Lake

I love the way the colors of these trees are reflected on the lake. It is such a beautiful and serene scene. We were out on a small boat enjoying the wonderful autumn weather.

Colorful Gourds at the Farmers Market

A visit to a farmers' market in the fall is always a colorful experience. These gourds were photographed at a market we stopped at in Michigan.

Where is you favorite place to view autumn colors? - please stop by and leave me a note

      I don't know if in autumn things are really wonderful everywhere I go or if the season causes a romantic mood that makes everything look nicer. And this lens is so beautiful that it doesnât help to solve the dilemma. Thanks for sharing the marvelous photos.

      Awesome lens with some fantastic photos for the Fall colors you have captured around the US. I think each part of the US has their own special Fall colors and would be hard to select one place. Appreciate you sharing this Purple Star lens. Thank You & Have an A1 Day!

      Thank you for the gorgeous photos. We don't get much of a fall in Florida and don't get much in the way of fall colors.

      Anywhere in England would be good if we weren't now suffering Ash dieback disease which is in danger of killing our most prolific British tree some of which are thousands of years old,already Oaks and Elms have come under attack from imported diseases now we have one heading for Plane trees,Ancient forests will be lucky to survive all these.
