Discover the magic of autumn foliage with B&H

Sandwiched between the bright energy of summer and the stark beauty of winter, the colorful splendor of autumn is often times overlooked. Although corporate America is diligently working to ensure that we remember the pumpkin spiced season, we at B&H are doing our part to help you observe some of nature's most picturesque months in their full glory.

In the hope that you will be inspired and encouraged to stop and take note of the changes around you, we've compiled a collection of items and articles to help you remember those moments. Whether it's the russet hues of leaves piled in the backyard, the determined look on your child's face when reaching for an apple on a branch just a bit too high, or the perfect formation of migrating birds while you go for one last hike in the woods, take these weeks and enjoy — for winter is coming.
