Autumn 1: Colorado

October was a busy month.  On the way to conducting two Visionary Wild workshops with Jack Dykinga and Justin Black, I spent a few days working autumn aspens near Ridgway, Colorado.  Plagued with bad weather and vehicle problems (after being far off paved roads, by pure luck I happened to be almost in front of the only repair place in Ouray when my truck’s fuel pump decided to quit) I still managed to get some images.  And I will say: I am really happy with the new D810.  Here’s a short slideshow.

    I almost made it this year to Ridgway. It is always a crap shoot when the best time to go. When were you there–late September, early October?

    Hi John, a great collections of images in this slide show…I love the late afternoon storm image best.
