Snow has come to the peaks but the valleys have received very little moisture. What has fallen melts, leaving a landscape in-between seasons. It’s a quiet landscape … summer and fall visitors are long-gone and winter enthusiasts haven’t arrived. Some businesses close and workers take time off in what is known as ‘shoulder season’. It’s a good time for everyone to slow down, and take a break. And I have too (to some extent) but my camera and I can’t stay away from the landscape long! Getting out is good for my head no matter what, and I love the more relaxed feeling this quiet time brings.

Kudos To Cottonwoods
It wouldn’t be fair to close out the fall foliage season without giving cottonwoods their due. Perhaps they are not as beloved as aspen trees but they do have qualities all their own. While they may look big and strong, their large branches break easily. I am always on the lookout for some with nice shapes. Cottonwoods are still hanging on to their leaves when the aspen trees are bare. Their colorful offerings help ween me from the aspen’s explosion of color, into a more monochromatic landscape. I hope you enjoy the images … the credit goes to the cottonwoods!
