FALL COLOR IN COLORADO September 23,2015

Last Wednesday, I took to the high country to check out the color change. This would be to the east of Montrose and up a Forest Service road just beyond Cimarron, CO.  From here you go back into the mountains and soak up the fresh air and fall color.

I was a bit early, but there was more than enough color change to go around. This is but one image of several dozen which I took home with me. From our place along the Uncompahgre Plateau, this is a circular loop of about ninety miles and that makes for a real nice day's outing. Lots of time for photography and other outdoor activities.

The height of color in the high country is supposed to be today, but I plan to go out again tomorrow when the mass of humanity have returned to their more normal routines. I dislike crowds and dust so I will always opt for a time when the masses are thin or nonexistent.

Today is sunny and nice with a beautiful sky of mixed clouds. It's a great time of year to be out and about.

A couple of weeks ago we were sitting beside a campfire enjoying the peace and quiet of Ridgway State Park in southwest Colorado.

As the sun set, a cloud formation started to form over the Cimarron range to the east of us. Then it put on quite a show as the colors started to change rapidly. This was one of the most spectacular sunsets that we have seen in this part of the country. 

I made a fast hustle to grab my camera out of the trailer, but I didn't think I'd have time to grab the tripod out of the truck, so I flipped the camera to total automatic and made several exposures of this most unusual sunset. No, this is not a Photoshop image. This is very close to how it really was. 

If I've seen one sunset, I've seen a thousand. But this one was different. Enjoy!
