Please share with us your first fall photos as we celebrate the end to this stinky hot summer. Smiling

Don't forget to post them on your social media for your fans/followers to enjoy as well! heart

(I saw there are frost warnings in the NE this morning, this is great for the leaf peepers...bring it!)

Hint from JB -- (Make an effort to take as many as you can this year so you can use them next year EARLY for specials and getaway packages)

Not close. It's on the other side of the hills...near gillumhouse's SIL.

Haven't had time to shoot local color, but it's good and we're headed Thursday for 2 nights at a B&B 30 min. from here, so I'll try to get some eastern Ozarks color to post!

This seems to be a late fall for us.  On my trip last week the colors through PA and New England were out to greet us.  I see lots of leaf raking in my future wink

Leaf litter is great for your yard and lawn though!

We just got back from a WVU/Ole Miss Rifle Match. The leaves are glorious - even after the rain and wind that went through here. The sun even tried to come through but the leaves were so beautiful it was not needed to make them beautiful - it would only have heightened the beauty.

DH has been coaching out high school NJROTC for 15 years now. This is the first time the Commander and his assistant took the rifle team to a WVU match. I took my handicam and videoed some of the match so the kids can study positions and stances for standing, sitting, and prone. A girl on the WVU team is from Germany (I was in her home area on 2011) and she scored 599 (out of 600) with 39X. It was awesome to watch them.

Yesterday was so beautiful - even on a gray day - that I told DH this morning we were going to go for a drive TODAY! Tomorrow would not do as rain was expected tonight (and we got the rain). We retraced the route I took Monday and came home the route I used to return home yesterday. It was gray - very little sun yet it was glorious! This was thru a dirty windshield at about 40 mph!!

This one is from a bridge crossing the Cheat River. We actually had NO ONE behind us and could stop for a few seconds!

UPDATE: After the "railroad train" than went through in the wee hours this morning (that is what the wind & rain sounded like) we drove around this area expecting to see totally bare trees. they are still beautiful. Did not have my camera with unfortunately.

Here's my contribution.  Happy to say that Cousin Becky is back in the decorating business.  It was too wet to gather corn stalks this morning, but they will follow soon, probably about the time the mums start opening.

I have to say that one of the pumpkins from last fall had an offspring pumpkin vine growing at the foot of the front porch, adding to the festivities.  No baby pumpkins from my vine, though.

I bit the bullet and have gotten some professional help with some big landscaping projects.  I'm sure I need "professional help" in a few other areas of my life toowink

We have been decorating for Fall. It's hard to get into the fall spirit when it's 95 degrees outside.

Ditto!

My sister's "general store" is now full of fake orange and red and yellow leaves, fake pumpkins, even some Halloween stuff, and it's 95 and high humidity outside. Give us another 6 weeks and we might begin to feel a little hint of fall.

This has been a crazy year for weather. Your just south of us so you know what I'm talking about.

Crazy here also. It has been hotter and more humid than usual and WET!! We have had several bursts that flooded - one rain so hard it totaled a house, knocked it off the foundation. We had rain some time in the 24 hour period most of the summer.

With this persistent drought,  our trees have been dying right and left.  We have been contending with dead leaves all summer without the benefit of the color change.

It's a Nikon..but not a digital SLR. I can't carry around that big of a camera. The one I got has like a 40x zoom...so cool.

Go Nikon!

We bought a very small SUPER POWERFUL one for my daughter's bday last year for her to use in NYC. The megapixel blows mine out of the water, I cannot even use the higher SD cards on mine now.  

I am going to take it West when I go to PacNW. She was born there so wants me to take photos of everything for her. and then I will slip the SD card out and a new one which I will use and hand to my aunt for my grandmother's 90th bday shin dig. Then they can do what they want with it.  Walmart will allow you to put the photos on DVD, when you have some prints made, so we will do that for my grandmother so she can watch on her tv.
