The Autumn Corral by kkart The Autumn Corral by kkart
I always wanted the “quintessential Colorado tourism photo during Autumn”, and for many years I have tried to get something that truly screams Colorado, and this year after several tries, I think I finally got one!

Located along Boreas Pass, this old corral made a wonderful backdrop against the changing color of the Aspen and our deep blues which we are blessed with here. I about flipped when I saw this scene and was elated to photograph it.

I hope you all enjoy it

I have to agree with you, you definitely seemed to have captured the quintessential Colorado in Autumn. The corral definitely evokes that feeling of the wild west, the colors are great and the layered look is also very nice.

Of course, I have been dying to go to or possibly move to Colorado when Im able, and this image is not helping my patience!

Yup,, that shot just about sells me to check out Colorado one day - in Autumn. Here in Australia we don't have vast areas of deciduous trees (Canberra probably being the exception). I couldn't care about the casinos, sky scrapers or famous people. But the Rockies would be place for me to visit!

Lovely depth, contrast, tones and composition in this photo. Nicely done =]

I always say I should drive up to the mountains when the aspens look like this and never do. Thanks for the reminder...now just to wait until autumn.

That aside, great shot. This is probably one of the best snapshots of the unique Colorado landscape. Oh and I envy you a lot!
