Nobody has posted fall images for 2023 yet on FM, unless I missed some threads in some forum.
To help folks plan trips to view and photograph fall colors (with Nikon gear of course), please pitch in.
If you select Just started or anything below that, please also post a reply mentioning your city/state.
Thanks in advance.

Missouri is green
Fall predictor "says" it'll be best here between mid to end of October

I live in central Texas but I am up in Marquette MI. The colors have started here. Peak is a week or so away. Central Texas is a brown November though last year for some reason we had various shades of brown. 😂

You guys are making Texas sound depressing in fall .. ha ha ha
I love Texas, by the way, and visit almost every 6 to 8 weeks for work, family, friends, food

Love driving in Dallas - at least 25 mph over the speed limit, or folks will give you dirty looks,
but still driving safer than the idiots in Saint Louis who cause so many accidents

The map says it should be near peak. That has never happened in my area. It usually only starts changing color around early October with peak generally a week before Halloween except in higher elevations where its usually 2 weeks earlier on all accounts.

The map I posted in my first post .. has a date of Oct 3rd week though.
It's from this site .. where you can change the date to show the predicted fall colors.

I'm in East-Central MN and we peak early in the season. The North Shore of Lake Superior (Grand Marais to Duluth) should have a little color now, but in about 10 days it will start to peak. By September 25th or so, the maples in my region will begin to change. The only species in my area that peak early is sumac. Sumac is common in oak savannas. It generally will go a deep red and be juxtaposed with goldenrod, and big-blue stem.
I'll take a high up to the oak savanna for sunrise tomorrow and see if I'm correct.
regards,
bruce

It varies from year to year of course.

2022/2023 were and continue to be extremely hot/dry, so trees lost a lot of leaves early (and frankly we're going to probably lose a few trees also). It's not 2011 bad, but I don't expect a very large set of fall colors in Central Texas, North Central Texas or anywhere out toward the Llano Estacado this year with 25% of the state in exceptional drought. Maybe a bit deeper in the deep NE portion of the state. As I say this, I checked the forecast and we have another 100F day forecast this weekend (as well as a couple that go to 98 and might clip 100 F in isolated locations). Some years get the high 90's and low 100's a few weeks into November.

I lived for a time in Erath County (about 50-60 miles SW of Fort Worth) and the drives along US 281 through the Hill Country all the way up to near Wichita Falls were wonderful. My daily commute in 2011/2012 was from Stephenville to a little north of Mineral Wells and the fall colors that year were amazing... Paluxy and Brazos valleys and the Palo Pinto region are beautiful and have great light at sunrise/sunset. That's a good area for you to hit if you're ever here in a better year and we get good strings of chilling days as are many parts of NE Texas and the Hill Country.

No color here yet, but we'll see how things break. Last year was really hot from May-early August and then we got rain which gave us a nice burst of life for the trees to hang in their until Autumn.

The weather patterns did align to make for a spectacular spring/early summer wildflower season this year in Central TX, one of the best 2-3 of my lifetime. I need to go dig some of those photos up and post them in one of the Z threads while waiting for fall colors.

Thank you for starting the thread by the way. I always enjoyed dropping in to view the Canon season threads from time to time. I think the broad participation threads liek that which are not too narrow in focus are a viable way to participate more regularly in taking/sharing images (pretty much one of the main reasons we do this, right?)

Fall colors are here in the Canadian prairies. They come and go very fast, after which it's just bare trees and snow haha. As for photos this is all I have this year that I would classify as "Fall":

The black locust turn early and there is a bit of color. Sumac can turn early, too, some of those. But mostly green.

Really more Nov here in E TX and if you catch the cypress in a good year you can not feel too bad about missing the NE

On Monday I was about 100 miles north of Toronto in the Orillia area (just north of Lake Simcoe) and noticed the trees were starting to turn. It's probably still 1-2 weeks until peak in that area. My feeling is it's a bit earlier than usual. I'm a bit southwest of Toronto and usually our peak is mid to later October with some trees hanging on until early November, but nearby I've already seen a few yellow and orange trees. Trips up to Algonquin Park to view fall colours in past years were usually over Canadian Thanksgiving (around Oct. 7-10) and those were usually a bit past peak color.

Below is a quick shot from Monday near Orillia.
