As far as chronology goes this is out of order, but I don’t think you’ll care. So I’ll just say we went to Breckenridge, Colorado a couple of weeks ago to start an extended fall color tour. Well we were too early. There was a very little color. If I get around to it I’ll share those later. Last week we went to Island Park like we’ve been doing the last couple of Septembers and it was awesome. Last year we were too late so we scheduled an earlier slot this year. Again not a lot a color when we got there. After a couple of pretty cool days and some time fishing while it was snowing, the fall color was coming on. What I’m sharing here are pictures I took the last day we were there and the area these are taken in is a rather small isolated area.
The area was pretty diverse. We’ve got a panorama of a pond in sunlight and everything else in shade from the clouds. These pictures were taken about 6:30 pm so a half an hour before sunset. I love what I call an angry sky and there’s a good one in these shots. Other shots are all individual exposures. I usually shoot fall color with a aperture of f8 or so. The individual tree with the blurred background was taken with 100mm lens opened up to f2.8.
