For starters, it's the month when autumn really starts to show its colors! The leaves on the trees change color, the air gets a little bit cooler, and everything just feels a bit more cozy.
The fall leaves are absolutely beautiful, so it's the best time to take out your camera or smartphone and start snapping away! Just be sure to watch out for those autumn breezes - they can blow your leaves away before you know it!
