Reader Photo Pick of the Week: Autumn

While the temperatures in Charleston are still warm, there is a new crisp coolness in the air in the early mornings, telling of the fall weather that is on the way.

For this week's submissions we wanted people to share their best photos that capture the essence of autumn.

The winner is Lara Wilson of Mount Pleasant with her colorful Colorado scene taken last fall.

Our two honorable mentions are Nancy Davis-Kahrs of Mount Pleasant with the photo of a tunnel on Blue Ridge Parkway, and Jack Breazeale of Mount Pleasant with his image of a road leading to Black Mountain Campground at the base of Mount Mitchell in North Carolina.

Next week's topic is stacks — books, records, anything that is piled up high.
