As fall arrived in Chilliwack, we put out the call to readers to share their favourite images of the season with us.

We were inundated with responses, from photos of kids and even dogs choosing pumpkins, to glorious images of sweeping skies and changing leaves.

Here are some of those images, and there are more on our Facebook page to enjoy.

Of course, we love to see your photos any season and regularly run our favourites on our Editorial page.

Send your photos along to editor@theprogress.com, along with the name of the photographer, the date it was taken and a few details outlining why it’s significant to you. In your email, use the subject heading Community Camera.
