The colors last fall seemed incredibly beautiful to me. Maybe part of my experience had to do with that it was my first fall with my new Nikon D80. A friend joined me early one morning for a drive up to Brainard Lake Recreation Area, near Ward, Colorado, USA. We walked up to Long Lake and hiked around the lake.
A small crop done, to get rid of a shadow from a bridge, and a few dead pixels cloned out. Otherwise, exactly as it came out of the camera.

    Sweet. I’m planning on finally hiking in that area this summer.

  • Thank you, Gary! This was my first (and only so far) time at this lake. Next time I hope I have time to go up to Lake Isabelle.
