Colorado Autumn – Part III
I have been putting processing my images on the back burner these last few weeks. Since the autumn foliage won’t last forever I decided to spend my energy shooting… I can always work with the shots later. The images in this post were captured near Telluride which is becoming one of my favorite ‘go to’ areas. You may be wondering if the golds are really this vibrant and the answer is yes! If I wasn’t here to witness how brilliant these trees can look with the right lighting I might not believe it myself. I took my time photographing this first scene making several compositions… horizontal, vertical, wide, zoomed, etc. and had a hard time picking a favorite. I was pleased to find a great spot where I can see 360 degrees. The last three images are all from ‘my spot’ on the same evening. To the north a colorful plume sprang from a nearby mountain while the sun was setting to the west and the moon was rising to the east. What a fun night I had shooting in all directions while listening to the elk bugle in the valley below!
