Autumn colors will peak this month in most of the Northern Hemisphere. How inspiring is it? If you google “landscape paintings,” over half the images you see will have been painted in October. Ditto photographs. And if you’re south of the equator, we’ll look for your pictures in March. Wherever you are, enjoy your first weekend of Ahhctober!

    Oh how I miss Ohio Octobers! Down genre in LA we don’t have much of a fall until November and then it comes and goes very quickly.

    Autumn’s colors truly are magnificent. But give me warm tropical beaches! Limited palette horizon-wise, but the people dress in all the shades of fall :>)

    Absolutely magnificent! Thank you for this incredible “beauty break,” Mitch.

    At first when I read the word “Ahhctober” I gave it a guttural German pronunciation in my head.

  13. Sure bets at the Calendar Oscars:
            “And the winner for best month is … October!”
            “And the winner for month with the year’s best day is … October!”

  15. I LOVE these pictures! I can get lost in all of them! Where I live, we do NOT see these changes – there is a very subtle shift to Autumn.
    I was incredibly blessed to have been in the UK when Autumn arrived about ten years ago – I couldn’t get enough of being outside staring at trees at the time! Ha ha!
    Thank you for sharing these! (We’re in Spring now 😉 )

    The stunning color show almost makes up for the sun disappearing earlier.

    Reading the title of this post in my inbox, I thought perhaps you’d chosen to write about fall allergies–you know, Ahh-CHOO combined with October! Imagine my surprise (and delight) to receive instead a selection of spectacular autumn artwork and photography. Makes me wish fall could last a bit longer!

  22. Beautiful post, Mitch. There are so many adjectives to describe the beauty of fall, but if I had to choose just one word to describe autumn, it would be ‘splendor’.
