Don Poggensee’s views from around Iowa in its autumn splendor

IDA GROVE, Iowa, Oct. 29, 2015 — Photographer Don Poggensee reports that he has “been on the road recently, doing fall color work and working on several other photo assignments.”  He offers a selection of autumn photos from northeast, northwest and southwest Iowa.

“We still have not had a real hard frost,” Poggensee wrote from his hometown of Ida Grove earlier this week, “and I am still seeing lots of good fall color, at least in certain areas of the state.”
