Your autumn photography leaves us breathless! We’ve raked in a pile of shots here and many more at Mingle.KansasCity.com. Feel free to add to the collection there.
To celebrate daughter Emma’s adoption day each fall, “we choose something special to do together and make new memories,” says Gretchen Young of Mission. This year they picked pumpkins, picnicked and went on a hayride at Kerby Farm in Bonner Springs. “What a beautiful fall day for so many reasons!”
Jim Majerle of Leawood captured this image of a water bird at Shawnee Mission Park Lake.
BJ Collins was driving in her Leawood neighborhood one fine fall day. “I saw this tree and the sun was hitting it, and I got my camera out of my trunk and took this picture,” she says. “Red never looked so good.”
Curtis Olinger of Lenexa photographed this house in downtown Parkville on a walk before breakfast one foggy October morning. To get this perspective, he had his arms stretched high.
“There was no better way to celebrate the season than at our daughter Cassity’s (October) wedding to Ross Wooten at Lake of the Forest in Bonner Springs,” says Kim Mitchell of Basehor, Kan. “It was a beautiful autumn day full of love and laughter!”
Sharon McCone of Leawood captured this tranquil image of benches along the Tomahawk Creek trail near 115th Street. They seem to be waiting for people … or maybe the season’s first snow.
Every year around the end of October, Julie Lewis’ family goes hiking at Weston Bend State Park. This year, 12 family members took part, “but no matter how many go, we always have a fun time,” says Lewis, of Kansas City. Here, Avante Stewart, one of her grandkids, strikes a back-to-nature pose.
Bruce L. Hogle of Overland Park shot this image at the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve near Strong City, Kan. These were the true colors he saw, “enhanced by the early-morning light coming over my shoulder.” Hogle used a photo program called Topaz Impression to lend the photo a painterly look.
Lori Eveler of Lenexa encountered these “hearty” pumpkins down the street in her neighborhood.
Russell Flair, a farmer in Blackburn, Mo., took this sunset photo at a grain elevator while waiting to dump his last load of grain for the day. The building in the background is the Marshall, Mo., power plant.
