These are a series of Colorado fall colors. The main post is taken at Maroon Bells, but driving through many part of Colorado's Rockies is a visual feast with golden aspen every where at different shades of yellow and gold.
More scenic beauty in one photo nearly isn't possible. What a grand and nearly solemn sight! The strong autumnal colours in the landscape, the blue sky the snowfields - all together a symphony of beauty. In spite of the difficult light conditions the exposure here is perfect. A photo like a painting ...
All the series is a wonderful invitation for hiking there.
Greetings from autumnal Germany!
A wonderful main image with the mountain peaks bathing in the sunlight while the lake is the shadow. Love these clouds, it feels like someone was blowing them into the image from the left. The whole series is a yellow spectacle showing the Aspen foliage in all its splendor. I have been there quite a few times but never managed to have such results. Somehow the yellow is not that easy to work with. You have pro results.
Hope all is well from the baby front :-)
W.Lim (2018/11/13 23:30:18): All if well and good with the Baby. It is more time consuming to take care of two. One is definitely keep you occupied, but two can leave you juggling which to take care of first and you learn to balance the time make quick decisions. Lot of warm and fussy moments, but also very stressful at times.
I don't just like it, I love it. The Maroon Bells in late September is a perfect autumn photographers paradise. The shadows come off the bowl about 9-10 am but balancing the early light is necessary to make a great image. IMO, the shadows are a touch too dark. I am sure you could have done a bit more in ACR or use a split ND on site.
I miss the mountains so much. Joanne and I made a BIG mistake moving back to our home state of California.
Each picture is wonderful. Here, the light management is superb, highlighting the shadowed trees while somehow you managed to stabilize your camera for 1/13 s to allow the water to smooth out, The next two really define each leaf giving that twinkling feeling that is seen in real life while Rene presence on the path invites one to follow. In the last two, the combination of massed color and mountains make very attractive compositions. HLJ, x4, Pat
