Colorado Fall Color Tour 2016

The Colorado Fall Color Tour for 2016 is now open for registration. Tour space is very limited and will be split up into two tours – Aspen and Crested Butte, Colorado. This is a discovery year for me so cost is low if you want to do some discovery work with me this year.

Hope you can join Chris and I this year!

Colorado Fall Color Tour

The Colorado Fall Color Tour for 2015 is now set and ready for you to participate! Early interest is at an all time high so there are only a few spots left in the tour. This year I’m combining forces with The Photo Frontier and Armando Martinez will be helping me lead the tour. He’s a master Lightroom and Photoshop expert and is waiting to give out his tips and tricks during the tour.

This year again I’m limiting the number of tour participants so you can get personal instruction and help when needed. The tour will begin in Aspen this year and head south again to our main base in Telluride, Colorado, one of the top Adventure Cities in the world. You’ll have 3 and 1/2 days of out in the field shooting.
Head over to the Tour page for more information and to reserve your spot in this year’s tour.

Look forward to seeing you this fall here in Colorado!

Red Mountain Pass

The most amazing scene a few weeks ago on my Colorado Fall Color Tour was coming out of Ophir Pass and heading north on the Million Dollar Highway (550) toward Ouray, Colorado was seeing Red Mountain Pass.  I have never seen so many fall colors in Colorado in one location.  It was truly an amazing sight intermixed with the iron-ore colored mountain pass.  Almost every turn was filled with amazing scenes that we didn’t know where to turn.  Here’s one shot above the mining area and highlighting the amazing color this year on the Ouray side of the pass. It was definitely one of highlights of the tour this year.

Colorado Fall Colors Photography Tour

This is the fall colors from West Dallas Creek Road and this is Sneffels Meadow with a view of Mt. Sneffels. It’s one of the most beautiful roads in the Uncompahgre National Forest near Telluride and Ridgway, Colorado and it’s just one scene after another of amazing fall colors. It was such an amazing scene this year. I could have stayed there the whole day.  Such a beautiful site and one of the place for my 2014 Colorado Fall Colors Photo Tour.

I wanted to announce my 2014 Colorado Fall Colors Photography Tour. It will be held September 25-28, 2014 in beautiful Telluride, Colorado!  It is a semi-private tour so the group will be small and spaces are limited. I wanted a chance to be able to work with my tour guests and give them more one-on-one time and so I’m limiting the number of tour participants. Come out and experience Southwest Colorado during the fall and experience the Colorado that I love. Experience the mountains that you only see on Coors Beer bottles and in Jeep Commercials and the spectacular scenery made famous by John Wayne in the movie True Grit! Colors are amazing and you will usually get a dusting of snow to cover the peaks.  Such a brilliant sight with the gold of the aspens and snow-covered peaks! Head over to the Colorado Fall Colors Photography Tour page for more information and to put your deposit down on this tour.  Don’t miss the amazing colors of Colorado next year!

Aspen Fall Colors in Colorado

One of the beautiful things about fall and even here in Colorado is the many colors.  I took one of the scenes I captured this fall that wasn’t necessarily an outstanding scene, but contained many beautiful colors. I decided to add some motion with the use of Photoshop to an exposure and produce an abstract of the scene.

If you would like to capture produce an image like this there are still opening in my fall photo tour. If you are planning your trips for the year and want to experience Aspen Fall Colors in Colorado check out my Fall Colorado Photo Tour.
