Hi Mathew,
Nice series. Looks like you still have fall colors. We didn't get much of it down my way.

Cheers

really good shots, mathew!
bring me back in time..... oh, about a month or so around here
the only thing I would change about the pics is to lower the opacity of your copyright as I find it is the first thing that my eyes draw to as it is brighter then the rest of the picture.
no harm in protecting your work, though!

cheers

Thanks, you all, for the wonderful comments.

Roscot, Vanderpool is approximately 150 miles southwest of where I live. And the these are the "Lost Maples", not many other places in the state where they're native. Anyways, the maples tend to turn earlier than the trees around here (if they turn at all, being that most of them are Live Oaks and Juniper ). By now, the maples have probably dropped all of their leaves, now its Red Oak season.

Thanks, Slipchuck, like I said before, the colors aren't as spectacular up here where I live.

Roy, I think its the best location in the state!

Ahh the colors of fall. One of my favorite season, along with the other three. Such an opportunity for huge amounts of color and dramatic lighting. Liked them all but 1, 2 and the last one are my favorites.
