Fall Friday

It’s a Fall Friday!  It’s been a great season for fall colors here in Colorado and today I thought I would bring some view from two locations today, Boreas Pass and the Lead King Basin.  Yesterday I gave you a little taste of Boreas Pass and a view of the fall colors in front of Mt. Silverheels.  Today I give you a panoramic view of the horizon full of aspens.

The bonus image today come from Lead King Basin in the Maroon Bells/Snowmass wilderness near the small town of Marble, Colorado.  The Lead King Loop is a off-road trail only accessible by 4WD and goes by the famous Crystal Mill (an image which I’ll publish soon) a mill run by compressor used to power the Crystal City.  During the spring and early summer the Lead King basin is full of wild flowers and in the fall it’s filled with the wonderful colors of aspens.

If you’re in Denver, come out to the Tennyson Art District for the First Friday Art Walk.  I’ll be at the opening reception of gallerynrc’s Mobile Phone Juried Show from 6-10pm. Two of my iPhone photos  will be featured at the show.  I hope to see you there.

Have a great weekend!

Capture Notes for Boreas Pass:

Capture Notes for Lead King Basin:

  • Very nice images Rick. I am really jealous of your Colorado shots as I just love the area and wish I could spend more time there. Thanks for letting me see the places I am missing. Good luck with the show.

  • These are outstanding Rick. I really need to make it out there one day.

  • That second shot is so amazing. Love the lighting and smattering of gold/yellow in the valley. I’m jealous of your views!

  • Fantastic shots Rick. Autumn in Colorado looks just amazing, and I’d love to get there someday.

  • Super images Rick. I love the depth in the second shot. Good luck with the show this weekend.

  • Man, that is some beautiful color, and the images are quite nice too! Well done!

  • Wonderful shots today Rick!

  • Fantastic shots man! I love the top one. I haven’t been out to Colorado at this time of the year in so many years. I need to get out there! I saw they are getting snow again up in the high country! Yay for ski season!

    • Yep. I went up to Central City last night to try to capture some fall colors and it got cold and windy. I know Vail got snow yesterday and it’s might snow down here in Denver this weekend. Hopefully a good ski season!

  • You can’t beat Fall colours. These are both fantastic shots.

  • Nice collection. I really like the panorama. The leaves are just starting to turn in parts of New York City. I’m ready for some cold weather.
