It’s that time of year when a shutterbug’s attention is caught by the natural beauty of the changing seasons. It’s a time when leaves expose their brilliant yellows, reds, and oranges, hidden from view for most of the year. When families take weekend trips to pick apples and neighborhood front porches are decorated by pumpkins and mums.
Fall is here, and for many parts of the country – it’s a beautiful time.
We want your help documenting the season. Please take a picture of the colors that surround you and tag it #NBCNewsPics on Instagram or Twitter. We’ll feature our favorites in the coming days on the NBC News Instagram account and here on PhotoBlog.
