Visions of Autumn Memories

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado


Being able to view the Alpine Tundra change to it's glowing golds is always something which I look forward to seeing, it is kind of hard to describe what it is one sees when standing here, but the best way to describe it is like rolling hills and valleys of very vivid golds...and I mean gold, not the kind of color one imagines with wheat fields, but something much more rich and deep in color.

It is kind of quiet up here, and your voice carries and echoes, but one thing is for sure, it sure is beautiful!

HDR processed from 3 shots, hope you all like it!
John

Once I realized that blurred vignette was intentional & not the Nyquil I just took taking effect, I liked it a lot. It's unique & really draws the eye to all the beautiful scenery.

Such vivid colours and a great level of contrast. That little bit of blurring around the edges really serves to pull the viewer into the shot. Almost makes one feel like they're actually there, gazing off into the distance. Great work! :)
