Welcome to CS 518 and the topic of "October Colors"

This CS follows on last weeks wonderful topic by highlighting your local palatte of colors at this time of year.
Was going to just pick the color "Orange" but there are so many more wonderful colors to see this time of year.

The shoot starts...RIGHT NOW....and goes on until 12:01 am October 19th.
Please limit each post to no more than three pictures taken during that time period, but you may have multiple posts.
Please follow all the forum rules, particularly image size and content (family friendly).

Have a wonderful time and let's see what October looks like in your neck of the woods, or city for that matter.

This one is a few years old, but should serve to start out. Now I am going to wipe the sleepers from my eyes, let the cat in and get a cup of Starbuck's.
Later today, I might even pull out my dusty camera and use it.
That is what the CS is all about....not the Starbuck's and cat part but using your camera.

SO JOIN IN and ENJOY!!!

After looking at some other pictures, found a rather moist Daddy Long Legs spider
moving across my Muscadine leaves :happy:

My time is fairly limited again this week, but I did have to visit my bank this morning. I couldn’t resist this splash of color next to the bank.

Found a new walking trail this morning. The sky was milky but the leaves were colorful.

Didn't enhance the colors, just used the levels slider (dark and light) plus a bit of sharpening.
Was thinking about SOOC, but just couldn't "leaf" it alone!:D
