Golden Aspen trees reflect in a lake in rural Gilpin County, Colorado at the peak of Autumn. This was a really tough shot, perhaps one of the most challenging shots I have ever taken. The lighting was very tricky, changing by the second as was the reflection. With every little breeze, the reflection would completely disappear. The lighting would become very harsh and then the scene would go dark as clouds would roll over head. Patience pays off however and I think a lot seem to forget that and instead simply throw their arms up in the air and move on to a different location. Some things just take time and often we are rewarded greatly.
Good sir, I admire your patience.
Your photos are so beautyful. All of them.
Wow! That looks great!
So much contrast between the coniferous trees versus the evergreen trees. simply stunning.
The reflections are fine, but the original golden leaves in the foreground, too. The autumnal leaves contrast with the green and black forest in the background.
Beautiful! I can see your hand print on this.

The trees are so beautiful, and I love how the reflection highlights that!
