[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is part 3 of my fall colors shot from Bear Lake, in Rocky Mountain National Park. This time it's above Bear Lake and of just an intimate of the land and it's fall foliage from the Aspens trees. I was actually looking for an overlook of Bear Lake with views of Longs Peak, I wanted to frame Longs Peak (Rocky Mountain National Park's highest peak at 14255 feet or over 4300 meters) with some of the fall colored Aspens, but I couldn't find it. but in my walking around I came across this scene, I loved how the leaves ahd fallen in the rocks and how the rocks created this nice leading line between the Aspens, I took several shots of this scene from different angles and perspectives

I love the repeated yellow in the lichens through the birch leaves. Also love the vertical POV and the upward climb into the light. Speaks volumes to me... TFS


Yes fall has come to your part of the world. Health issues are keeping me close to home this year which is hard to take because it is my favorite season. I think a faster shutter speed may have frozen the leaf movement a bit better but the composition is nice with that rocky way leading to the bright gold at the top. I love yellows and grays together.

Evelynn : )

I really like your composition here, the rocks lead the eye into the background trees, and the sharply focused leaves in the foreground really add to the shot. Nice complimenting colours as well,
