swoon worthy: photos from my true north

I totally swoon over fall colors. There’s this small window each autumn when you can literally see the change in the air. Just before I left for my soul sister art retreat last week, I saw this tweet from a rep at Verizon:

Beautiful #fall foliage pics from #vzwcolorsduluth – upload your pics for chance to win #galaxy tablet from @smbTP http://t.co/2AkxDOev

Wait, what?? A cell phone photo contest in Duluth? Perfect timing! I was about to head there with my Samsung Galaxy S3 in hand!

Now, I knew I probably wouldn’t enter the contest since I already have a relationship with Verizon {via the Verizon Wireless Midwest Savvy Moms program, they gave me a Samsung GS3,¬†six months of service, and the freedom to honestly share my thoughts/experiences with YOU}. But the contest did inspire me to carry my phone everywhere on my trip, capturing beautiful fall scenes. The camera on this phone is awesome and the friends I was with couldn’t get over the HUGE, crystal-clear screen. I love the pictures I snapped with it and thought I’d share a few with you…

This last one is actually a panoramic of Lake Superior. Totally swoon worthy, right?

Happy fall, all!
