I posted this in themed views so those of you who are lucky enough to live or visit where the leaves change feel free to carry on with images of your own.

I did a search and didn't find a thread for this topic so I'll start it off with some shots from a recent trip to the Appalachians in West Virginia. The full set of keepers can be seen HERE as well as a previous year for those of you who don't know how beautiful WV can be this time of year.

Danged Yankees.

There was one started last year called "Autumn colours". But we might as well let this one roll.

Thanks Cam, I updated the title a bit Thanks Jim & ab012. My work schedule forced us to vaca a little early so the leaves weren't at their peak yet and the sun stayed hidden most of the time so I just took what I could get.

Simply stunning, beautiful! What an explosion in colours, especially like #3, 4 and 6.

And don't nag about the colours and light not being ideal yet, I've never seen such thing in my life, let alone capture it! I remember from BBC's Planet Earth that these views are also very pretty from high up (satellite even?). We don't have that here: too flat, too many buildings and no places with only broad-leaf trees always some pine ruining the view.

Great shots, and I'm jealous! Looks like you were in the Dolly Sods region? I've suddenly found myself with a lot of time on my hands (out of work) and figured one bonus would be to take advantage of the colors just peaking here in WV. But every day since I've been free it's been rainy and grey, and they're predicting the first snow this weekend which is also Bridge Day weekend!

btw, you could also retitle this thread to Autumn Colors II for continuity purposes.

Well done, David! Composition especially -- I find it hard to pick out the right shapes and elements, when photographing hills full of trees, but you've nailed it. RE: #2, nice to see a shot of a creek that doesn't run dead centerline. #6 is classic.

Nice Shooting! #6 look like Blackwater Falls. I wish I was there this past weekend to get in on the action (it has been rainy and miserable here in Ohio.)

Number 6 is absolutely beautiful, thanks for sharing. Nothing like this in El Paso, TX.

stiuskr your correct, some of the shots were from Dolly Sods. We don't really take a full vacation anymore since the kids are grown but we try to get down there for a couple of days every fall. We stay in Elkins since we've found there is so much to see around that area.

Good idea, done.

Thanks, I'm actually pretty proud of myself as very few of these have been cropped. I'm usually a cropping fool but have been working on composition lately.

Yep it is BW falls. Thanks to all the rain this is the first time we've been able to get the falls this full. I'm back in rainy oHio myself now.

Thanks. Your right no sites like these in El Paso but then again you won't be shoveling snow in a month or two

They look beautiful, both WV and Suomen. I only saw these fall colors once in a bus trip through La Rioja (widely and deservedly known because of the wine) in Spain. It looked irreal: the actual trees seemed to be too much PPed :O .
