Photos of beautiful autumnal scenes from around the world.

Fall is a great time to be a city dweller. These photos, which can otherwise speak for themselves, remind us why. Only three are mine; most have been curated from wonderful photographers who have graciously licensed their work for noncommercial use via creative commons.
