Aspen trees in Durango Colorado


Aspen trees in Durango Colorado

Today’s post will be quick and simple.  Here we have some Aspens growing in Colorado.

Anytime I see an Aspen I immediately think of the Rocky Mountains. Known for their shimmering leaves, it shouldn’t be much longer until they turn to their signature gold color.  They are truly a sight to behold.

Hopefully this year I will get my fix by visiting Flagstaff and catching some of these in all their golden beauty.

Until next time…

  1. The Aspens in Breckenridge were beautiful in their fall golden color. Every day we were there, it was more beautiful than the day before. We thought of you while we were there, knowing how you could capture the sights with your camera and your skill.

  2. Great shot. I had the same reaction. I grew up seeing these trees every spring in Colorado, and its the first thing I think of (that and that song by John Denver).

  3. Great image, thanks for sharing it.

    Got to love the Aspens! I’ll be photographing a cattle drive this weekend up above Crested Butte and the leaves should be beautiful.
