I think autumn is one the most colorful seasons to photograph. There is also something magical about fall, probably because it's the season before Christmas and everyone starts to prepare for holidays. As a photographer, I really enjoy taking pictures during the fall time when trees change their colors into vibrant and saturated yellow, orange and red. However, for someone new to the US (like myself), it can be a bit tricky to pinpoint the exact time when it's the best time to shoot fall colors in my neighborhood; or for someone traveling around the US, having an interactive map of fall colors would be a great help; or if someone needs to photograph only the yellow colors of autumn.
Well, there is something that makes extremely easy to figure out the right moment & place to photograph fall colors this year - 2014 Fall Foliage Map (http://smokymountains.com/fall-foliage-map). There is timeline slider at the bottom of the map so you can see how the autumn colors change going back in time or in the future. It also gives you 7 levels of fall color change, from 'no change' to 'past peak'.
