Autumn, the best season, has arrived once more. The autumnal equinox took place a month ago on September 23, marking the end of summer and the start of fall across the Northern Hemisphere. It is the season of harvests, festivals, winter preparations, migrations, and, of course, spectacular fall colors. Across the north, people are beginning to feel a chill in the evening air, apples and pumpkins are being gathered, and animals are on the move. Collected below are early images from this year, with more to follow in the weeks to come.
