Most of Virginia lights up in brilliant fall colors each November, but Reston is particularly gorgeous this time of year. This area has more mature trees than most urban or suburban areas — it’s basically a city within a forest. During the summer, those trees cast refreshing shade around town. Then during the fall, they are magnificent.
Here are some of the photos I took in the Reston area this season.
