The fall foliage season started off a bit dull, but the colors suddenly popped in the last week. I’ve since heard many people remark this is some of the best fall foliage in the region in years.

Via our Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr feeds, I’ve compiled – in my view – the top 20 fall foliage photo submissions. I am continually amazed by the photography talents of our readers and thank everyone for sharing their pictures.
