Cabin on the Hill

Going back through my images I dug up this image from my 2006 Fall Colors trip (with Steve Parker) down into the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. This image happens to have been taken between Silverton and Ouray, I believe.

What reminded me about this image was, I was perusing Google+ today and saw someone else’s image of this very same cabin and waterfall, and I remembered that I had that image too. So I dug it out of my archives, took a NEW look at it and began working on it using Lightroom’s 2012 processing and Color Efex Pro 4 (the original image was taken back in October 2006) and I really liked the resulting image! (I recall I wasn’t too happy with these images way back when and thus never really finished them then. Good thing I didn’t throw them away!)

What do you think? What’s your thoughts on this image?

Hanging on to Their Glory

Spent this past weekend down near the San Juan Mountains near Lake City, Colorado. The Aspens were well past their prime, but a good photographic outing nevertheless. I like the image below in that it shows the final phase of the fall colors here in beautiful Colorado. Even these few aspens are desperately trying to hold on to their fall glory, before the winter onslaught arrives.

This is definitely one place I need to head back to in the coming fall seasons. Lots of aspen groves and not many people–just the way I like to shoot.
