Animas River Fall Sunset Reflections

Fall Colors are quickly fading here in Southwest Colorado but I was able to capture one more shot outside of Durango, CO along the beautiful Animas River Valley. 

The Animas River has taken a beating from a record drought and all the debris runoff from the 416 fire but today on this shot, the river showed its brilliance and hope for a better tomorrow…

Mt Shuksan Belt of Venus Sunset

Mt. Shuksan located in Washington State is one of the most majestic glacial mountains in the continental US.  While sitting directly at its base, you are instantly overwhelmed by its shear size and massiveness – a good reminder of how small humans really are in perspective.  Combine that with Fall colors and a beautiful late evening Belt of Venus glow with its multicolor red and blue bands and you have a world class photo and viewing experience… 

I focused one shot on a two way pano stitch to help show the scale of this beautiful peak and then I put the wide angle lens on to capture some of of the fall color foreground with the peak pushed back a bit.   

I hope these shots helped you at least capture a brief moment of this spectacular setting….

Thanks for viewing my site and hope your Fall has been fantastic…

 

San Juan Mountains Wildflower Bloom – Summer 2018

Despite the severe drought and the 416 Fire still active but not presently threatening structures, some higher alpine regions in the San Juan Mountains are nearly peaked with wildflowers right now with most public lands open.

Thanks for viewing!
