November rolls in with a vengeance with cold breezes, sub-zero temps in some areas and snow in others; but also brings beautiful rich autumn colors, a gathering of pecans and a great harvest of pumpkins for all those delicious pecan and pumpkin pies. (My personal fave is “Sweet Potato” pies and if you southerners have never tried a piece, you are truly missing out on a treat.) ~ Judy ~

The QEMD “Finch” Group continues to grow…which is excellent, bringing our membership up to 1355 and an approximate 28,180 photographs into our group’s main pool. We're happy! Hope everyone else is, also. Your photographs have been outstanding. Thanks to all of you for adding so much to the group.

We've started the "Front Page Favorites" which everyone seems to enjoy. Any time anyone has a suggestion for the group, please drop us an email. Remember it's YOUR group, too!

We both hope you have a wonderful November and remember to invite others into the group.
Come, stay awhile and comment on some of your “fellow flickr friend’s” photographs.

We wanted to start off the November thread with some of the excellent Autumn photographs you have posted into the group. It was hard to narrow them down to just a few. Hope you enjoy clicking on them and seeing the photographers' photostreams.

~ Judy and Professor Ramadani ~
