Fall is a magical time of year, as trees and foliage change character from the greens of summer to golden yellows and browns.
What better way to celebrate the season than with a collection of stunning images that will take your breath away.
A winding track through bright canopied trees. The leaves are starting to blanket the earth and the grass has yellowed. You can almost feel the chill breeze rustling through.
A carpeted pathway through the forest with golden light shining through. You can just see the grassy meadow at the end of the track and feel the last warmth of the sun before winter comes. The morning mist is starting to give way to what will probably be one of the last warm days of the year.
Bright chestnut leaves carpet the ground around these two benches. The oranges and yellows pop against the dash of bright blue sky.
Kids love to play with leaves. No matter how often you put them in a pile it's so much fun to scatter them around and jump into it. Making a mess as they go with a smile.
Forests can be dark and intimidating. As the leaves fall the trees begin to look like bare skeletons, their finger-like branches clawing at the gray sky above.
The crisp breeze across the water sends little ripples out towards the golden-lighted trees. The blue sky above is dotted with clouds swiftly flying past, bringing on the winter shortly.
The bright tree stands alone with yellow leaves still clinging to its branches, looking over their fallen red and brown brethren carpeting the earth below. You can practically smell the loamy, soil beneath.
A still lake reflects the fir's and the mists floating just above the water. The autumn colors are just seeping in but you can already feel the cold in the air.
A bright fall morning where the grass hasn't yet completely yellowed but the trees have already passed their best foliage down to the ground. The tops are now bare, and it won't be long before they're completely stripped of their glory.
The bright trees contrast the dark water and the steps leading down. Ducks still paddle happily, their playground not yet frozen. The deep red leaves cover the grass, making the canopy above indistinguishable from the carpet below.
A misty autumn morning has just enough chill to make running pleasant. Gone are the days of sweating miserably in the summer heat and the colorful scenery makes a beautiful landscape as it passes by.
A stunning blue sky contrasts bright yellow foliage while a waterfall tumbles in the background. The morning air is crisp and the water calm, waiting for the chill of winter that comes soon.
A red squirrel perks his head up at a noise, frozen in his adventures and carrying a nut. He's getting ready for the winter when food is scarce and he can rest, but for now, it's time to hurry.
A deserted road winding through the forest. Even the firs are sparsely clothed, their needles having chilled and their cones dropped. Other trees are already bare, their damp fallen foliage now food for the worms.
A lovely stroll through the trees is the perfect way to admire their colors. The blanket of colors matches the riot still showing in a rainbow on the branches.
Bright red color pops contrast the still green trees reflected in the water. A few fallen leaves float by, the cold waters swiftly moving them away from their home. The grass is dry and crisp, and a slight chill breeze floats across the water.
A perfect alignment of the forest has branches reaching up over like a cathedral. The orange leaves blow a reminder to those not yet fallen in yellow above that soon they will join them and the sky will shine through.
A hedgehog hunts for his next meal among the leaves. Nuts are easily found among the leaves, a perfect meal to store for the long winter months ahead.
