Autumn in Colorado!

It's everyone's favorite time of year in Colorado - Autumn!  I love the Fall colors in the mountains this time of year!  This year is tough for me, as I'm not able to get out there to the mountains for fresh photos, and this is one of the most dramatic years for colors in many, many year.  Heartbreaking!  Nevertheless, I'm enjoying seeing the photos from all my other photog friends, and I'm taking the time to go back through some of my old images and re-live the moments from last year and beyond.

 

This image is one I shot just east of the Buffalo Peaks Wilderness Area, just outside of Fairplay, CO; along the edge of the famous South Park.  I was taking some wider shots of the peaks themselves, which you can see in the same gallery as this image (just click the image in this post to be taken to it in the gallery), but for this one I decided to zoom in and get close to that colorful swath of forest rising up out of the valley, onto the hillsides.  It was just after the sunrise, and those golden aspen leaves were lit up beautifully by the early morning sun hitting them.  I can remember that wonderful morning like it was yesterday...
