Breckenridge Gold

I’m in New York again on business this week. I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to get out and capture New York but if there is a will there is a way. Hopefully I’ll come back with a few attractions from the Big Apple.

Fall is in the air here in Colorado and in the high country, colors are starting to change. This past weekend and this upcoming weekend should be prime for capturing the golden aspens here in Colorado. I’m hoping to spend next weekend back down in the Ouray/Telluride area when I return. My wife and I took a quick trip up to Boreas Pass and this time went over the pass to Breckenridge, Colorado. You could tell the dry summer is affecting the leaves this year, but there was still plenty of fabulous scenery along the way.

Coming down from Boreas Pass as you enter into Breckenridge you see the gold stands intermingling among the pine trees. I love how the gold of the aspens bursts out in color against the dark green pine trees lining the mountain side.

  • Enjoy New York. I love the aspens in fall.

  • Oh how I love the fall colors. I’m still waiting. The colors haven’t changed yet in Toronto but I’m heading north next weekend and will hopefully find an abundance of fall colors. This is beautiful Rick.

  • Safe travels to you friend. Now, I clearly need to plan a trip to CO to do some picture work with you.

  • Now that I’ve accpted the fact that summer is over, I can’t wait to get out and do some fall shooting. Nice work with this capture Rick.

  • Gold indeed, this is awesome man.

  • Those Aspens certainly bring the hillside to life. Never been to Breckenridge, but I’ve read about it as a Ski resort, and a high one too. does fall come earlier at the higher altitudes?

  • This is absolutely phenomenal Rick!! Wow, what a gorgeous scene you’ve captured here!
