Covered bridge on Old Frederick Road in Maryland on November 3. Submitted by reader Don Dille.

Since the snow on October 29, the D.C. metro region has been treated to a terrific two-week stretch of weather. The majority of days have featured mostly sunny skies, perfectly timed to coincide with the annual peak of fall foliage. And even in foggy conditions, CWG’s Kevin Ambrose showed its possible to capture the season’s vibrant colors.

Especially along and east of I-95, beautiful fall foliage remains, although today’s winds - gusting at times over 30 mph - will surely strip the leaves from many trees. So have your rakes ready.

Over the last several days, I’ve put out a call for readers’ best fall foliage photos and the submissions have blown me away. The set of photos that follows is the season’s best. We are very fortunate to have so many gifted photographers in the D.C. region and following our weather coverage.

Be sure to keep reading to see the stunning display...
