Glowing Aspens in the San Juans
On a fall trip to Ridgeway, CO, the late afternoon sun was making the aspen leaves glow in all directions. I decide to focus on more detailed photography and I noticed a cluster of orange and red aspens deep in the valley off the side of the road, so I got out to investigate. I was disappointed the climb to the valley was too steep for me to get to, but not giving up, I found some roadside aspen to frame the beautiful trees I saw below and took this amazing view. What an incredible display nature provides for us each autumn!
