Contrasts by kkart Contrasts by kkart
:bulletred: If you like my photography, please considering purchasing a print Photography is how I make my living and there is no greater honor than having someone hang my art on their walls. Prints come in all shapes and sizes along with all paper finishes including canvas. If you decide to purchase any of my work, I would love to see it! Feel free to send me a snapshot of it hanging and I will feature it on my facebook page. 

About the photograph-Fall can be such a contrast of seasons in Colorado. What starts out as warm can often turn cold and when the snow falls it can create almost a surreal look and feel to the landscape. Late fall is one of my favorite times of the year to be a photographer. The opportunity is limited as the window maybe open up only 1-3 times out of the year where things come together to make it all happen. Photographed at Chatfield State Park, I had some very subtle light to work with before the sky gave way to brilliant blues creating another look and feel entirely than what you see here. In a way it almost reminds of IR photography with the colors, fun stuff! I just wish I had more chances to photograph this sort of weather during Fall.

:bulletblue: Sharing is caring!--My rules for using my images I ask that you respect my artwork and my rules when sharing my images. You are more than welcomed to share my artwork anywhere you like, however I do ask that you do NOT remove my , alter my image in any way, shape or form and that you link back to where the image came from, in this case my site on DA (though my personal website would be ok as well) That is all I ask. Thank you!

I too thought IR when I saw the thumbnail. The actual image was more pleasing than I had initially anticipated. :) I have seen this before growing up in Maine, but it was a rare thing to see, and my ninja turtle camera would've done a poor job of capturing what you've captured so well. Nicely done.

wonderful shot John.  We're in the northeast now (far removed from Japan) and didn't get the bright colors this yr.  matter of fact, i wasn't even inspired to do much photography it was that bad.  Glad that Colorado got some goodness.
