Autumn Travels

Shot in Alluvial Fan area of Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

What a scene that just glowed...and I mean GLOWED. It made your jaw just drop open. I am fortunate in that no one else was there, and was lucky to be able to take about 100 shots of this scene alone, playing with composition and such, and custom white balance settings, and in this one, something similar to a sunset setting was used.

Let me know what ya think! Can ya hear the rustling of the leaves??

Sadly I am unable to hear the leaves rustling. I love the colors though!! And how the road sort of disappears before popping back up farther along... Though I personally would've walked farther up to avoid that one dark green tree... I feel that it is too dark and doesn't go well with the other brighter colors.. Fantastic job though!! :3

You are right about it glowing.. the picture is positively amazing. I really can't stop looking at it. It's like something out of a dream you know? It's not often you get such a scene to yourself either.. Luck was certainly with you that day!

I included it in a fall feature I did. I hope you don't mind..

You were talking in one of your recent blogs about meaningful comments vs just the "this is beautiful".
Well let me just say that I love everything about this photo. The colors are to die for. I really like the composition; the way the road leads your eye through the picture. The way the bright green trees in the foreground contrast with all the wonderful autumn oranges. If I could draw well (and I hope to someday) I would want to draw exactly this composition, not changing a thing.

If I ever get to the point where I think I could do it justice I may come back and ask your permission to use your photo as a reference.
