FOTM November 2012 - "Turning A New Leaf"
 
So here is another month for those who like to take in the seasonal colors with their Foresters!
This month's theme is...

November: "Turning a new Leaf"
- show your Forester out in the fall foliage




This month is for those who like to explore the different shades of color that autumn brings with their Foresters. Some of you may already have shots like this while others may need to go hunting for them, no pun intended. Whether you're down at the state park, cruising through the countryside, or just racking the front yard... If your Forester is embracing the colors of nature then this is your chance to enter! This contest usually comes down the best photograph, so show your best shot for the best chance of winning.



Mostly the same rules as always:

-Photos must be in hosted format and embedded in your post
-The photos must at least contain YOUR Forester and not someone else's.
-No more than 4 photo's per entrant
-Polls will begin when we get 15 entries* or November 19th, whichever happens first.

I took these pics about two weeks ago. I'd go out and take better pics if I could... but fall foliage is already gone here in Quebec :(

A little of both. Rear didn't have spacers in at the time and lots of weight made the camber a bit wonky...
