Here is my one fall shot on RP.

See? The trees are molting and some leaves are blowing around bit.

I thought you had one of those newer fancy cameras with a flip screen LCD so you didnt have to stand on your toes.

You know, I've never even thought about taking a train pic using the live view/flip screen held up high. Hmmm....

The trees are just starting to turn here, but we are getting the cold frosty mornings, so I haven't got any fall foliage shots yet, just one of Jack Frost at work, does that count?

Gee, Jim and I thought you were smart...Guess not.

While you are at it, you can do this for low angle shots as well, like say, on a railhead of an oncoming train for example.

You don't have to thank me.

Indeed, an embarrassing admission from Jim. But big of him, to stick his neck out there!

Actually, I did that very thing this morning when I had my camera mounted on a tripod to get as low as possible. I was doing a back lit sunrise shot and I didn't want the sun to appear above the train.

Anyway, a few more days of submissions and I'll have some pics to add to this thread.

But it's from last year so I guess it still does not count.

Ok, I can play along with a few. I hope to get a few more next weekend in Wisconsin and Illinois as long as the fall color holds on for another 10 days.

After getting home from my trip, I came back to too much work to even process one shot. Hopefully sometime soon I can. I don't even know what I have, I fought weather most of the time. But then again, cloudy is the new sunny, it seems.

I am surprised at how many non-sunny shots I have gotten accepted, of late.

That's even better, but very rare around these parts. Maybe once every 8-10 years we might get a little snow in late October/early November.

Really enjoyed your series, Thias! Great color up north. I'm a little surprised the leaves hold on that late in October.. Perhaps it's the lower elevation? We're peak here in the low lands of W.Va, but tonight's heavy rains and wind gusts of 60+ will wipe them out.

Better luck next year on my end!

Thanks, Chase. We're just starting to see peak right now. In the past few days it has really come on strong. Lots of yellows and oranges. Hopefully I can find a little time this weekend to take advantage of that. Also, there are still a LOT off trees that have green leaves. There is a huge maple in my gf's backyard that is still green and probably won't dump its leaves for another month. Makes for some late (and usually cold) fall clean up.

I took one Fall color photo this year, and it doesn't even have a train in it! I'm pitiful!

So far the only photo I've entered since the leaves turned this year, I plan on adding more.
