The Beauty of the Season

I hear piano music mixed in with the cool breeze when I'm out enjoying the sights and smells of autumn. I can't get enough of it! I enjoy the organic as well as the graphic nature of the color, the shapes, the textures, the movement.

Since this is my first full autumn in 10 years, I may be a tiny bit overboard, but this is not the place for me to discuss politics, so I am sharing more with anyone who might be interested.

I've got one more photo of Maroon Bells, other than that, I try to look for interesting compositions that might keep a viewer looking longer but sometimes I just shoot too fast out of sheer of excitement of finding more and more. Sometimes it bothers me that it keeps changing everyday until it ends too soon giving way to the winter elements, but that is part of the reason it is all so special.

fall color

Sometimes the only thing better than fall color is fall color with a tiny bit of snow. It's all about being in the right place at the right time and this year, I just couldn't pull it off. It was tough enough shooting into the sun or shooting in harsh daylight. There were barely any clouds that day and it made things difficult. But, here are some more fall photos from our hike in Maroon Bells near Aspen in mid-September. My blisters are finally healing!

It says it all!

My friend, Ken Matuzak, posted this last week and I just had to share.

"Lindsay Lohan 24, is all over the news because she's a celebrity drug addict. While Justin Allen 23, Brett Linley 29, Matthew Weikert 29, Justus Bartett 27, Dave Santos 21, Chase Stanley 21, Jesse Reed 26, Matthew Johnson 21, Zachary Fisher 24, Brandon King 23, Christopher Goeke 23 and Sheldon Tate 27 are all Marines that gave their lives this week, no media mention. Honor THEM!!"
