I went out wandering in the fall colors this morning. I think what makes the Rocky Mountain autumn so striking is the contrast between the bright yellows, oranges and reds, against the dark background of the evergreen trees.
In other parts of the the state, the stands of aspen are huge. A friend in Aspen (the aptly named town) takes these photos.
I am very enamored with the way water droplets bead on aspen leaves.
And doubled enamored when the leaves are floating down a stream.
