Its that time of year, the leaves are changing to some fabulous colours, reds, yellows, browns and oranges, and I think quite a photogenic time, especially when the sun makes an appearance.
Here's a few to start the thread off.

Stunning colours of autumn, I can only find older photos from our garden when all the Japanese acers were showing at their best. …...

In reply to HAZY:
What stunning colours Hazy.
I've given up on the sun for this year, just to get a dry day is a bonus these days!
I did look back before I set the thread up, and some I took around Ladybower Reservoir were nice and colourful, mid-November, and that was a cloudy day. So you can get some decent autumnal photos on a cloudy day
Even Wheel Stones on Derwent Edge were clearly visible!
While nearby Bleaklow was draped in snow, and thick cloud!

Alan. said:I agree it is a lovely time of year for colours...if we ever get any sun again I might be able to get a few photos.

Though it is possible to get decent autumn colours even on a cloudy day, see my reply to Hazy with the Ladybower Reservoir photos.
Lovely photo Alan, I do love how colourful a carpet of autumn leaves looks.
Our sycamore has long since dropped all its leaves, but none fell in our garden this year, though the wind has been a little stronger than normal.
However, the cherry tree has almost finished leaving a carpet of leaves, so hopefully I'll get a day with decent light to get a piccie.

I think Autumn is pretty much over here already. This was from last week and there were hardly any leaves left on the trees - it's a view over Yarrow Reservoir
Beech and Oak are still hanging on to their dead leaves giving some colour, like this lone oak on the edge of the moors
I think a nice beech wood is worth an autumn visit where all the leaves are the same rich brown, whether on the ground or still on the tree
