I am from the east coast and when I moved to Colorado, I wondered if I would miss the fall foliage of Connecticut and the New England area. To my surprise, I have fallen in love with the aspens and enjoy the bright color. They make a mountain look quite joyful and happy – just to be. Since the sky was less interesting in this photograph, notice that I have reduced it to a small segment of the photograph. Nature and photography are a wonderful combination for visual impact. Enjoy!
I was able to do a fall excursion in Colorado with my sister. We traveled to Leadville, Twin Lakes, Independence Pass, Aspen and Buena Vista. I could not resist sharing some of my photographs with the golden aspens in bloom and the magnificence of the 14,000 high mountains. All of these landscape photographs were taken with a tripod and high F-stop (F-16) for maximum depth of field. Of course, lighting with nature photography is of the essence and I was blessed one morning with nice cloud formations for a special effect.
