Autumn Roads ~ 2018


I love driving along country roads any time of the year but especially in the fall. Judging from all the tourists, other photographers and people telling me so, I’m guessing you do too! Autumn road images have been among my favorites in the past so I made it a goal to add to my collection this year. This is my fourth fall living here, in the beautiful San Juan Mountains. Searching for fresh compositions, I was happy to discover a few new roads and vantage points I want to show you. So come on … let’s go for a ride!

  16. Thanks for taking us with you!

  17. Such spectacular scenery! I’m drawn to #6, I think because I have a thing for those brown hills juxtaposed with the autumnal trees, and #1 and #3. I love road pictures. 🙂 Thanks for the ride.

    • That is dry tundra vegetation you see at the top of ‘Winding Through’. Thanks for your note and preferences. Other’s comments help me to see from a new viewpoint.

  18. These are gorgeous!

  19. Thank you for the ride on the roads of colors, Denise, it was spectacular! I love the leading of a road or trail of any type in a photo, yours here are amazing!

  20. Thanks for the ride, it’s beautiful!

  21. Seems that you do what I do. Taking back country roads looking for whatever will interest me with the camera. Done this many times. Here in PA, the color has reached its peak at most places. However, there is still some left depending on where you go. I’m following. Cheers!

    • There’s no shortage of photographers and cameras … is there? Thankfully there are a lot of back roads for us to explore. I am from South Jersey and am familiar with many areas in PA. I went to college in Philly. Where do you live?

      • Live up here in Reading, PA. It’s about 60 miles NW of Philly. Philly takes about a hour drive away for me.

  22. Agreed, roads are a great composition element, and these are spectacularly executed. Love the light in Forest Road in Fall!
