Fall is officially here. If you are like me, you may be a little reluctant to leave summer behind.  After a few days though, I usually start come around to appreciating the new season and all the things fall has to offer, like how great it feels sleeping with the window open on a cool autumn night, and, mostly, to all the beautiful fall colors.

Let's take a virtual trip to see fall foliage sights from here in America and around the world. With help from the extensive photo files of Getty Images, I put together a short tour of foliage on display in Japan, England, Germany, Scotland, China and the U.S.A.

Hopefully seeing these beautiful pictures will bring you into the spirit of autumn and get us looking forward to the approaching change of colors coming soon in South Jersey.

Here are some outstanding fall foliage photos from America & around the world.
