Driving up a local canyon just minutes east of Salt Lake City, Utah, USA one fall morning, in very late October, I came upon this stunning sight. The sun was just coming over the ridge and was setting these bare Autumn Aspens afire. You can see just a tinge of yellow hanging on here and there amidst these bright skeletal trees. A very beautiful fall image, but unlike most seasonal images of this kind, having very little color. This photograph was turned into a “watercolor” digital artwork via Photoshop CS2.
