That really depends on the calendar & Miss October!  :oops:

That's two great pictures to start us off but we need more entrants - It's about what sums up autumn for you. Could even be a pile of apples.

I've got 2 shots in the bank so far. I'm hoping for that 'magic' moment that epitomises it.

Not just to win but to feel I'm happy. The bar is high so I want to try and kid myself I can leap that high  :lol:

Yet another excellent shot. This is really bringing out the talent. If you've never entered a photo comp, this is the one to go for. The theme is all around, so go for it.

I'll put my money where my mouth is soon. :)
