Autumn Extravaganza!


Eager to get caught up, and get on with new work, I’ve posted my remaining autumn landscape images in one, big MEGA-POST! This collection (much larger than usual) is a sort of potpourri of images that didn’t fit into other posts, fell through the cracks, or were shot later in the season. As mentioned in an earlier entry, I went out a lot and really worked our local peak colors! I processed many more, then edited the selections to include only my favorites … those with something special or different than what I’ve shown before. Snow came to the peaks on October 4th which added beauty to the mountain scenery while forshadowing the long winter to come! I always appreciate your visits and hope you enjoy this ‘Autumn Extravaganza’ … happy scrolling!

  1. These are absolutely gorgeous, Denise. Well done!

    What an amazing array of scenery from our beautiful area. I LOVE your titles.

    So many great captures. That “Seasons in Contrast” is spectacular. All the photos with the Aspens are my favorites too.

  4. Lovely autumn images and some spectacular backdrops. I really like Aspen trees, got a chance to see them in Utah.

  5. Beautiful photos Denise. ‘Here I am” is ‘funny’, with the trees bending over to each other, like the large mother/father had been looking for the little one. So good that you saw that. Great title too, that’s what put me onto it, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have seen it.

  6. Wow, I am glad you put them together here. I can understand some pictures do not fit with others or hard to find context to post. These are fantastic collection. I think they match this season!

    • Thanks! I’m glad to have gotten through processing them. I have some more with old shacks and buildings coming but the focus isn’t just fall.

  7. Beautiful series!

  8. Lovely, Denise! It’s like a mini-vacation. 🙂 ‘Mingling,’ ‘Through the Forest’ and ‘Old Autumn Grove’ are my favorites. Can’t get enough of those white trunks! 😉

  9. A post full of eye-candy, Denise! 😍Your aspens are fabulous and your landscapes are always so beautifully composed. Fantastic Autumn series.

    Just beautiful. Thanks for all the autumnal glory.

  11. My favorite is Old Autumn Grove. Great collection to round out your fall adventure!

  12. 24 Mary Ann Silvers

    Absolutely lovely!!! I feel at peace when I look upon your “beauties”. .

  13. Each one is spectacular, WOW! Your compositions show your love and passion of your area’s beauty. I so enjoy seeing each one of your posts, Denise!

    • Thank you very much Donna … I’m so glad my passion shows through. I know how hard it is to keep up with blogging friends so very much appreciate your visits!

  14. Wow! I love them all!

  15. Really incredible shots Denise! I love the aspen groves with fall foliage….beautifully done!!

  16. Fall is always my favorite time of year and it is nice to see it beautifully and masterfully portrayed here and in your recent posts. You had an amazing fall palette to work with too I see.

    • Hi Rich … appreciate you stopping by! I know how hard it is to keep up with one’s own blog, let alone keeping up with others! I’m glad you like what you saw … I really worked hard to find all of these compositions.

    Like Rich, Fall is also my favorite time of year. Thank you for these amazing images Denise. Beautiful as always.

  18. These are all so beautiful and capture Autumn at it’s finest.

  19. Beautiful fall colors. We went straight from summer to winter – only about 2 weeks of fall. Your photos make me envious.

    • Glad you enjoyed the photos Ruth. Our fall lasts from mid September through mid October with the middle 2 weeks being peak. It goes by fast which is why I made it my job to get out there. Where do you live?

      • Indiana. We usually have a nice fall in October, but this year we had 80’s in Sept/Oct and then went straight to winter weather with a few nights in the teens. We have been averaging 20 deg below normal for a couple of weeks now.

      • The weather has been crazy in many places. We experienced a light snowfall last winter, drought lead to wildfires. Everyone is praying for a lot of snow and we are off to a pretty good start.

  20. Mears Peak and Old Autumn Grove, Southeast View and A Bit of Winter – those, and the rest – all of them reflect your comfort in this landscape. You’re the perfect guide to the Colorado Rockies.

  21. Love the wonderful landscape vignette compositions (e.g. ‘Here I Am’ and ‘Beyond The Forest Edge’). The large majestic snow covered mountain backgrounds with contrasting foregrounds of waning autumn are quite spectacular!

    • Thank you again! I got out a lot this fall and enjoyed every minute of it. Winter is more challenging. The trick is to go out as soon as the snow stops, before the bald blue sky appears, and snow melts from all the trees. Then there is icy roads, forest roads not plowed, hard to find a place to pull over, tracked up snow from deer & others … etc.
