Colorado Fall Colors 2014

Autumn Lightning, Capitol Creek

 

    Autumn is an amazing time in the Rocky Mountains. I was happy to have managed to get out to see Colorado's wonderful display of fall colors in the last weekend of September and the first weekend of October. A two week vacation to the Pacific Northwest earlier in September caused me to miss the beginning of the show, but the two weekends I was able to spend photographing the changing aspens were incredible. Because my time available to shoot the fall foliage is limited, I tend to do more driving than hiking so I am able to cover more area. This year I focused on three locations: Capitol Peak in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness near Aspen, Kebler Pass near Crested Butte, the Cimarron Valley near Silver Jack Reservoir. Here are some of the images from my two trips.
