Fall colors are magical! Who doesn’t love this time of year? Aside from the fact that it’s a reminder that winter is coming (not ideal for those that hate the cold). Otherwise it’s a colorful bounty!

Depending on which part of the country you live, the turning trees of autumn can be a sight to behold! Admittedly I’d love to go to Vermont at some point to see and photograph the fall colors there. But in the meantime the golden glow of turning Aspens in the mountains is pure luv 🙂

Sadly, Nature can steal the colorful thunder should an early snow or cold snap come just as the leaves are turning. Then the leaves more or less turn brown. Such a bummer. But when it all comes together, then yay!! Santa Fe’s Aspen Vista Trail in early to mid-October is like visual overload. Hiking on the Sandia Crest trail on Sandia Peak above Albuquerque, NM can be equally as stunning. And of course, Colorado’s incredible turning Aspens do not disappoint either.

In lower elevations, strolling along local creeks also provides Fall colors via changing Cottonwood trees. These big trees offer some wonderful golden yellow colors as well.

The Fall Colors collection below is of original, fall photos. Some look unconventional as they’ve had specialized filters applied during post processing. This yields painterly-like and or abstract effects. Others remain untouched and as they appear in nature.
