Dallas Divide Reflection

Newer Older


I had a very uncloudfull fall. I did have one good morning at Maroon Bells, but almost everyday I was out shooting it was clear as can be. That said, I did get a few shots I'm fairly happy with. I like this one partly because I don't think I've seen it before. It is in very popular area, so I'm sure there are many photos of it around, but it's nowhere near as common as most Dallas Divide shots you see. It also just seems to have a nice "feel" that I can't really describe. Curious to hear what you think.

Thanks so much for taking a look.

Not HDR. Grad ND filter and processed in Lightroom.

    Loving the colors - even in your cloudless scene! You managed the light and tones perfectly. We all have preferences for the atmosphere, but for the most part, I take what I can get. The grass is always greener on the other side... Not only did you get fall colors, but you captured some beautiful alpenglow on the mountain. Brilliant!

    I really love your composition and framing . . . one wonders if it is the result of thoughtful deliberation or gifted vision . . . regardless, I think you got "the shot" here . . . again . . .

    Those fall aspens are looking amazing! And you captured some great alpenglow in the mountains.

    I hear you about the cloudless skies. I went out 3 weekends for fall foliage + waterfalls, and had to deal with sunlight every time. One of the days was actually completely cloudless.

    Very nice color, but the reflections really sews it all together for me. Very nice Dan!

    Really enjoy the colors here! There is a wonderful mix of blues and yellows, something I don't see to often in nature shots.

    I think it's wonderful ~ The reflection caught my eye first then they eye is drawn up to the Aspens, and well, I just love Aspen's in the fall. We don't find many around here and they're not nearly as colorful. And lastly, the peaks catching the sunlight really makes this something special. I often have a tough time with scenes like this as it can easily become a very "busy" image. Not so, here. A perfect balance of a very beautiful scene!

    totally agree, love the wonderful somewhat cooler feel and it's a beautiful isolation/example of not having to show it all to make a great image, it has a nice intimacy
