Happy Autumn

PhotobucketAs the days shorten and temperatures crisp, the quiet green palette of summer foliage is transformed into the vivid autumn palette of reds, oranges, golds, and browns. As hard as it is to bid farewell to summer, I am excited for all of the new photo ops.

I hope you are getting out to witness the first visible signs...

The Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge begins October 7th and runs through Nov 25th. It is a colorfully inspiring autumn photography challenge aimed at capturing the beautiful shades of autumn, so go dig out your cameras.

You can find more details about the upcoming challenge here. I hope you will join Rebecca (of Bumbles & Light), Kristi (of Live and Love out Loud), and me. Can't wait to be inspired by your colorful images!
