Even as the end of October nears, the trees are still aflame with color around Massachusetts.

Throughout the season, we’ve been featuring amazing Instagram and Twitter foliage photos from all corners of the Commonwealth on massvacation.com/fall, which pulls in every photo tagged with the hashtag #MAinstafoliage and displays it on a neat map. For travelers, the website also has some handy suggestions for foliage driving routes and what to do along the way as well.

In addition to the interactive map and activities, we’ve also been picking one scene every week to showcase as our #MAinstafoliage Photo of the Week. From thousands of entries, there have been hundreds of really spectacular landscapes, especially of late.

While we can’t show all of them in one place, here are ten of our favorite #MAinstafoliage photos from this month, which were not named Photo of the Week but still wowed us. As always, we owe a major “thank you” to all who shared photos with us over the course of autumn and allowed us to re-share.

Now, have a look at some of the best #MAinstafoliage views from October.

If you have a dazzling fall photo that you’d like to enter for consideration, have at it! There’s still some time left in October and we’ll be spotlighting the pretty scenery through November’s beginning, too.

Entering is simple: just snap a photo on Instagram or Twitter, tag it #MAinstafoliage and let us know where it was taken. After that, keep an eye on our foliage map to see your image appear.

Of course, if you aren’t an Instagram or Twitter person and you have a photo you’d like to send our way, you are highly encouraged to do so and can on Facebook. We’ll be sharing some choice #MAinstafoliage photos there, too, so you won’t miss out on anything.

If you’d like to thumb through more captivating #MAinstafoliage like those shown above, take a peek at our Instagram feed or Twitter account. For fall activity ideas in Massachusetts, just click here.
