Autumn's Stand by kkart Autumn's Stand by kkart
While exploring the backroads of rural Colorado this Fall I happened upon a pretty amazing stand of Aspen. The colors were just glowing thanks to the overcast conditions which would soon drench me in a mix of rain, snow and hail. It also gave me the chance to try out one of my new lenses. It a way it was sort of eeries....the absolute sound of silence....completely utterly quiet and still with not even the sound of a bird, nothing. I can't wait to get back to this area next year before I head out East to shoot the colors.

Hey, mind telling me what the lens was? 'Cause those leaves seem pretty detailed, and so far the only lens i've been getting this with is the 50mm, but this seems wider... Thanks! :)

I should say it is a Minolta lens, specifically this one [link](beercan)_lens48.html It's pretty legendary

simply stunning - the gold/blue and the straight lines with the noisy static bushy leaves - it's really breathtaking

Nice capture! On my screen, the aspen trunks have a bluish cast to them. Was "reality" the same way that day? Overcast days can do that sometimes, at least to my eyes.
