10/3/11 – Featured in the GREAT PLAINS OF NORTH AMERICA Group.

We don’t get a bright and colorful Autumn season, here in Western Montana. The leaves on the few hardwood trees gradually turn brownish orange and the grasses change colors to match. The one sign that we have that Autumn is here is when the mountaintops get snow and the air turns colder. We usually get snow in the valley in time for Halloween, which means that we have to buy costumes big enough for the kids to wear over their snowsuits. In spite of the free candy, they only last about a half hour before complaining, “I’m cold…I want to go home!”

The original photo for this image was taken in October of 2010, in Columbia Falls, Montana (USA), with a Kodak EasyShare Z712 IS camera. Editing and several layer effects were done in Photoshop CS. Texturing was done with the Redfield Plasteroid filter.

    very nice shot! I love it! … down here (NE Wyoming) the leaves are still green on the trees and so is the grass! hope it lasts a bit (grin/smile) .. winters can be so long (grin)

  • Thank you! I hope that this season lasts longer than it did last year. Even though we don’t get the vibrant colors that the East Coast does, we still have our few aspens and cottonwoods to brighten the landscape, as well as the willows and other plants that turn colors. Our sons took us out camping by Glacier Park this weekend and I was able to get several photos of the cottonwood trees. It was beautiful!
