Here in South Carolina my maple tree won't look like this for another month, but this is a sight I've seen many times in previous autumns - a bright red male cardinal in a yellow maple. The cardinals are often the first birds to show up when I refill the bird feeder.

Concerto: a composition for one or more principal instruments, with orchestral accompaniment.
This was actually inspired by an Easter picture I saw, but it took me about 6 months to finish it.
If you were to lie down on the ground under the cherry tree you would see April Showers.

Instead of the leaf floating on top of the water, I wanted to try something different and show it from beneath. Created in Vue.

This started out as a “mystery object” picture a while ago, with the camera closer to the windchime so it was harder to recognize. I later reworked it as a fall scene.

A walk in the birch woods. I created this for an Autumn Colors 3D landscape contest. I used a different method of rendering the lighting which took longer to calculate (basically that's what 3D rendering does, the software calculates the light that would come from every point of the scene through the virtual camera lens), but I loved how warm and soft it made the scene.

It looks nice for a picture, but it's a pain when you're out walking! This took over a week to render (at a larger size than this), mainly because of the blurring.

This pictue from 2009 is from a photograph of some crepe myrtle leaves on the ground. It's weird how the weather affects the fall colors. A tree that I photographed in brilliant color the year before declined to put on any display the next year, but the crepe myrtles I had never noticed in the fall were all red and gold. I missed getting them while the leaves were still on the trees, so I had to shoot them on the ground. Then I added a filigree design to emphasize the leaf shapes and colors more.
