Blurred Aspens

Using In-Camera techniques, I photographed these past-peak color aspens while moving the camera slightly to achieve a blurred, ethereal look.

Fall Colors Have Arrived

At the Kaibab National Forest, adjacent to Grand Canyon National Park’s North Rim.  At an elevation between eight to 9,000 feet, Autumn arrives early.  The Aspens were just beginning to change colors and should be at full color around the first of October. But small pockets couldn’t wait.

An Explosion Of Color!

I wasn’t quite expecting the  brilliant colors I encountered at Kolob Reservoir yesterday. I really caught the aspens at peak, peak color!.  Kolob Reservoir is about 35 miles from Zion National Park in Southern Utah and at an elevation of some 8,000 feet.

Rainbow Ice Plant Along California’s Coast

On my trip last week along California’s spectacular coastline, I noticed that the Ice Plant growing along the sand dunes and beaches was a very  vibrant color.  Fall weather had made its mark on the Ice Plant. In the second photo below, you’ll see the color of Ice Plant in other seasons.  With an approaching Pacific Ocean storm, the contrast of the autumn colors to the dark blue skies was a refreshing look. Now, if we could only get an ocean in Southern Utah where I live.

This is the beach at Garrapata State Park just south of Carmel. The beach disappeared the next day under the high surf produced from a strong Pacific Ocean Storm.  Those photos to follow soon.

Southern Utah Painted With Fall Colors- Part One

I recently showcased fall images from The North Rim area of The Grand Canyon in Northern Arizona. The highlands of Southern Utah have been putting on its own fashion show this past week. This area is above the redrock country most associated with Southern Utah, reaching some 7,000 to 10,000 feet in elevation.  These beautiful sub-alpine forests contain awesome Aspen tree groves that provide most of the color in these mountains.  Stay tuned as the autumn colors migrate to lower elevations in the next month, including in and around Zion National Park.

Autumn Colors Explode In Northern Arizona

The North Rim of The Grand Canyon and surrounding Kaibab National Forest yielded some intense fall colors this past week.  The aspens were on fire at around the 9,ooo foot altitude.
