Saturday
« on: October 02, 2023, 12:16:21 pm »

I got up early to catch sunrise at a favorite location with the fall colors. The Castles was the location and the fall colors are looking good. Unfortunately the sky was a bit too clear but you have to take what you get in these situations. I liked this patch of aspens for the color variety. The reds are much less common than yellow when it comes to aspen trees.



Then after catching up on some things around the house and a nice nap I got out for sunset. Weather moved in during the day which I was happy to see. I took an easy 4x4 drive up to this overlook. Light was hard to come by but it briefly broke through a couple of times and the second time I was actually ready.

Some rain curtains across from the sunset.


The light breaking through to the valley floor.

I agree with David, the rain curtains are exceptional. The shape of the clouds give so much power to this scene, I really love it. The light in the last photo is aslo superb. The first one is more classical and very pleasant with the fall colors.

The first one for me,...

I  love the "heights" portrayed.

All are indeed special.

Thanks guys! I can't disagree about the rain curtains.

Thank you! I love the place but I was wishing for better light and clouds. I revisited this same location this morning and got what I'd consider a better shot of The Castles with some fresh snow.

All superb.

+1

Thank you both!

I also favor the 2nd one.

Thanks. Yeah that was a special moment. Glad I was able to be there at that time!
