Colorful Autumn Foliage - My Photos
Fall Foliage
This afternoon was my first autumn photography excursion on the 2011 fall season. It is mid-September, and already there is plenty of colorful fall foliage in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. Today I found a spot with fall colors in the San Isabel National Forest, approximately 7-8 miles west of Buena Vista, Colorado. Enjoy all of the photos and two videos at the bottom.

Bright red on some parts of this Colorado aspen leaf.
Yellow Foliage
A little tougher photographing a yellow leaf, as its so bright and lacking in contrast.
Orange Leaf
Another bright orange leaf.
Red Leaf
My favorite, a red leaf.

Red Fall Foliage

Currently the fall foliage color season is early and there isn't the stunning and large fall scenes one might expect. Instead, I focused on individual leaves and clusters of color.

Taking pictures of fall colors can be frustrating. When focusing in, my camera can focus on some of the leaves, but not others. This can be seen in the two adjacent photos. Still, I think there's enough color for an autumn lover to appreciate. :)
