Fall is my favorite season, largely because of the beautiful transition of colors in the vegetation. Whether it’s grasses, small bushes or large trees like these aspen, the forests are even more beautiful as the seasons change from summer to winter.
These photos were taken not far from Vail. The colors here, while vivid, aren’t as diverse as those in the forests of the eastern USA or eastern Canada, consisting mostly of shades of yellow. But they’re beautiful none-the-less. And they’re set in the majesty of one of the world’s greatest mountain ranges!
