Savor The Last Of Summer This Follow Friday

It is hard to believe that autumn is right around the corner. Soon the leaves will produce less and less chlorophyll, beginning the transformation into those beautiful fall colors. This last Follow Friday before we officially head into the fall, we’re savoring the last of summer by showcasing a group of Sony landscape photographers and their shots posted from the season. Give them a follow and tag your own Sony shots with #BeAlpha for the chance to be featured on AlphaUniverse.com. Then follow @sonyalpha for your daily dose of Sony inspiration.

See how these landscape photographers are savoring the last bits of summer with their cameras (including the new Sony Alpha 7C).
