Autumn Thunderstorms

This was quite a scene driving with Judy along Colorado's Highway 7 after shooting Wild Basin, we came to the top of the hill and I was awe struck, and just had to stop! We both shot this scene, and it was just incredible watching this for a few minutes, the faint smell of cabin woodsmoke in the air, the distant sound of thunder, and Mount Meeker shrouded in the fog and rain wrapped clouds. Really just an amazing scenic to say the least....I sit back and look at this and wish I could atmosphere like this to shoot everyday! How I love those thunderstorms!

I love this photo. The yellows and oranges of the trees contrast the gloominess of the dark, grey sky. Just awesome = )

how those aspens really make the photo pop. I really like the atmosphere created by the cloud atop the mountain.

How are you John? Well I hope. Doing my best to get in here and keep up with my correspondence, but my schedule has made it difficult. It's comforting to know that I can travel and enjoy nature by visiting your gallery.

sometimes i don't know what i love most, your photos or their description. I guess both since one complements the other and give you the chance to experience the whole scene with more than one sense! Thank you John :)

With the way that mountain/those mountains are shaped, makes it look the smouldering caldera of a volcano throwing out an ashy cloud :)

The second line of yellows looks as if the mountain border is on fire. Good work.

Not bad. Sometimes if you look into the small stand of aspens just off to the right (just out of frame), you will find deer, elk, and (in the past at least) bears. :)
