C&O Canal at Carderock the morning of Nov. 9 (Harold Pfohl)

Inspired by the stunning set of Rock Creek Park fall foliage photos by Capital Weather Gang’s Ian Livingston (which appeared in the B section of Thursday’s print edition), a number of Post subscribers sent us some of their best fall shots.

What a treat it was to view these emails. From western Virginia to the eastern shore of Maryland, I saw some amazing autumn scenes. While I can’t share all of them, here are some of my favorites. Many thanks to all who sent in their photos.

Some of the most striking images were submitted by Harold Pfohl. I’m sharing with you his entire set of six images (including the one above), which he described to me:

Pfohl’s images wonderfully show-off how striking fall foliages photographs can be captured in foggy conditions, much like CWG’s Kevin Ambrose did at the Tidal Basin the very next day.

“ I took this photo October 31, 2011 at about 8 a.m. It shows a field of frost-topped sorghum located on Clagett Landing Road in Upper Marlboro. Unusual crop for this area as corn and soybeans are usually grown around here.” (Joe Behun)
