Maroon Bells Fall Color



Last week I was in Colorado taking pictures. I wasn't alone. This scene outside Aspen is perhaps the most famous photo icon in the western states. There were 61 photographers (I counted them ) lined up along the shore. One of them was my neighbor and photo friend, Boyd. We were fortunate that the water was almost as still as glass, color was near peak and a little snow accented the Bells.

While about 40 of us were there at dawn, the light isn't at its best until around 10 am when the sun is high enough to light up the hillside on the left. You can see a little bit of breeze had picked up by then on the lake near the far shore.

Nikon D2X
12-24 mm lens
1/60 @ F10, ISO 100

Len,

I've seen that pic done before where the water was sky blue. Seeing how clear it looks now, I'm wondering if those other pictures were highly altered!

Bill, I wonder if it is naturally blue when the wind is up and the water is rippled?

They probably just spice it up a bit, without doing much work it's possible
to make them look a bit more... spicy?

Like so:

Speaking for the most of us in the flatlands thanks for the photo. It humbles me to think of these places like this. To think of such beauty and tranquility is heartening to the soul.
