    • You’re right, Jeff. So many natural setting are just awesome. I saw those Aspens from a distance and hiked toward them. When I got closer, the scene just framed itself.

    • The timing was good. The Aspens have lost their leaves and the most of Larch haven’t yet dropped their needles.

    • Jack Frost was indeed active. I will post a few others later that show the frost on the firs a little better.

  4. Those aspens stand out perfectly. The contrast is a real eye-opener.

    • My son and I discussed that; would we if there was a big bull on the other side of the water?

    • Yes, sometimes it can be colorful even in winter. I would have liked a little snow, but not to cover the grasses.

  8. I think the layers visible as the eye moves from front to back are wonderful. I find myself slowly moving through all five ending up in the aspens. Excellent composition.

  9. This is so another photo that looks like a painting. Love all the colors–from the silvers and golds to the purples and greens and browns.

    • It does, kateri. I can easily imagine an artist sitting there putting it on canvas. It would be a little cold, though.

    • Late fall at that. Last year at this time there was over a foot of snow there.
