You Capture - (My Town in) Autumn

I think we're going to have a spectacularly beautiful season this autumn. I use the future tense because I suspect if I just had one more week, we'd have this autumn thing in the bag. Currently, there is still just a little bit of summer lingering; however, with the bursts of colors creating a patchwork mix with the summer greens--and some evergreens--it is indeed beautiful.
My town wears autumn very well.

It's a small town in the Bible belt, so there is a church on every corner. Steeples look lovely clothed in autumn.


A railroad track that cuts my town in two is lined with autumn.


One border of my town is a beautiful lake, which peacefully and serenely reflects autumn.


If we were really into American football, we aren't too far from our NFL team's training facility. Autumn makes a gorgeous backdrop for the field.

Here in my town farming is still a way of life, though on a small scale. Autumn brought harvest time.


Yes, with every passing day, my little town's autumn wardrobe is looking more and more lovely!

Beautiful pictures! Just this morning Twisted and I were leading our running club through Fort Leavenworth, marveling at the colors in the trees over the historic homes. Fall is a beautiful season.

Gorgeous photos! Just yesterday Steve was looking up some pix of autumn leaves online since we don't have the change of seasons here. I don't notice any difference since I didn't grow up with them, but I do love seeing the colors!

I love the steeple! Small country churches in the South really stand out in the fall!

We're too far south to have much fall color. Your area is already beautiful!

Our autumn is almost over. November and its barren greyness approaches...

Great finds! I love the football field best, I think-- with the trees and mountains in the distance. Almost** makes me want to play. :)

I agree, our town does wear it well. In fact, it wears most seasons pretty well. I love the incredibly bright green of spring. Summer is just, well summer is great. Fall, enough said (shown), and winter - hmmm, that is the only bleak scenery perhaps. The occasional snow we get is pretty, but the empty leafless tress seem sad.

We get a lot of BROWN in TX. Can I visit you next year? :o)

The lake is beautiful. Looks like it should be autumn there all year long!

Fall is definitely a season of beauty, isn't it? Just magnificent. I love how you captured it!
