Yes, it’s that time of year again folks. The fall color extravaganza is alive and well in the high country of Colorado. A short drive along Junction Creek Road in Durango up to the Animas Overlook and beyond produced a varied portfolio of fall color images. For those who are comfortable using one, I suggest using a two-stop graduated neutral density filter to hold tone in the high values at the top of the frame when the sky is present. Many of these images were slightly overexposed in the camera to make the colors POP. Additionally these images were edited in Adobe Lightroom using the adjustment brushes and graduated filter.

The first photo her is an example of compression of space caused by using a long lens. In this case I photographed a scene across the “draw” from where I stood using a Nikon 55-300 zoom lens.
