How do you know when you are seeing this year's fall colors at their peak . . . . only in retrospect.

Bob, these are both great, what dates go with each shot? This scene seemed well past peak when I was there last week.

Nice and gentle fall colored slopes are very sweet here with the morning sun.

I'm enjoying the pun in the title of your post: "... mountains... peaked..." ;-)

It makes me envious that I couldn't get to Utah this year! :-)

What makes this work, and I have been there, is that the type of vegetation is prefect for low angle golden light. Unlike aspen which tends to act like a mirror, this oak tends to look like red velvet without a lot of reflected highlight. There is aspen of course, but it is far enough away not to glare.

The light angle is such that shadows are not deep, (not so later in the day) and most of the scene has good light. The sky drama is essential and even though the first has color in the clouds, the shape of the clouds in the second and the more even lighting make it my favorite.

I suspect these were taken within a day of each other and about 2 weeks ago. Its a great place with a great natural composition.

For dan, I live only 30 miles from here, and was on one of those ridges in the image for several sunrises this year and never knew about this place until I saw Bobs image.

Because such scenes exist only for a very short time each year, they can be hard to find even for locals,

Beautiful carpet of color. Nice to have such broad expanses without development. Congrats for catching them at "the moment."

Nice images, I am having a serious case of "wish-I-was-living-back-in-Utah-itis". Very sad I am not there for the fall colour.

Trying to place where this was taken from ... somewhere along the road to Crystal Cascades, perhaps?

Hired Goon, thanks and if you mean Cascade Springs you are correct.

D'oh. Crystal Cascades is a place near Cairns in far north Queensland. I did mean Cascade Springs

Very nice Bob.


I like the clouds... Especially in the second.

Hey Bob,

#1 is nice, I think the sky feels unbalanced though. But #2 is really sweet! Man, you nailed it in #2. Perhaps with #2 it could be the lighter shadow area too, #1 just feels too heavy on the left side I think. Perhaps a tight shot of #1, with just the one layer of clouds over the mountains, and what would then be a tighter "V" in the foreground with those fall laden hills... An idea...
