The "autumn" theme resulted in spectacular and colourful photos being entered. What a great show!

Thanks to all the folks who entered their photos. You showed us quite the range of what "autumn" can entail.

And thanks to all the folks who showed their support by voting. It's a tough job to choose only 3, isn't it?

I've added the usernames to each photo in the Gallery, as well as a location, if it was known. If I've made any mistakes, please let me know.

You can see all the entries in the Gallery:

Thanksgiving weekend Lake of Two Rivers, Algonquin Park. Just behind the beach was an area where there were canoeists everywhere. I had to be patient while this random dude was the only one in the frame. There are about 5 other canoes just out of frame.

It was a tough one this round. One of the harder ones pick a favorite from. I loved all of them.

A very nice shot Skeeter. And congrats on winning. :thumbup:

Mine was taken October 21 2008, which is why I thought it should qualify as "autumn". It is in Algonquin Park on the Petawawa river between Burnt Root and Catfish lakes. The portage sign is the portage to North Cuckoo lake. There had been a blizzard in the morning, complete with high winds, white outs, and about 6 inches of wet snow, but so serene and beautiful when it stopped.

Thanks very much Tripper. Shearjoy, that is an awesome image that you have. You can just sense the silence pulling into that bay.

Yes, there was no doubt that Skeeter's was the best. Wow. What an image!

My photo was shot in Killarney Park from the place where the famous picture of Franklin Carmichael was taken . It is looking east on Grace Lake towards the portage into Carmichael/ Nellie Lakes.
This location has been discussed a lot in the thread about the Group of Seven painters.

Gorgeous picture, Skeeter. Nicely done! :clap:


Mine was taken at Six Mile Lake P.P. on our annual end-of-the-season Thanksgiving trip which we've been doing to the same waterside site for many years. I don't remember whch year that one was, but if the timing is right, that lake is always truly spectacular for colors.

Yes, Skeeter, my avatar shows one of the nicest of the Hamilton falls. This one is Tews falls viewed from the bottom.

Thanks very much for that paddletothesea. I am actually considering getting it done on a canvas wrap.
