Colors of fall

With fall approaching, Franklin County's many talented photographers are here to bring readers the best shots of nature and those who live in it. The basis for the Sunday collections goes back to March 2011, when author and photographer Jane Naliboff of Chesterville began sending a few pictures each week. Other photographers have since joined the effort, creating one of the Bulldog's most widely appreciated features.

  1. Fungus on the tree looks like chicken of the woods...maybe a bit gone by, but a few pieces look prime for the plate.

  2. Thank you all very much because everything is wonderful.
