Speaking of autumn colours.... here is a shot I took last weekend waiting for my wife. I did not arrange anything, the trick was simply spotting the opportunity at my feet - and having a camera at hand. The shot proved pretty popular, gathering comments and faves quickly, and still failing to reach Flickr Explore somehow. Oh well.
EDIT: and of course, just after posting this, it did get to Explore in hindsight, making it my 28th shot to do so.
