Uncompahgre National Forest, Colorado
During the peak of the fall colors, aspen trees seemingly change color from one moment to the next. Shifting winds draw more and more leaves to the forest floor while dropping temperatures hasten the color transition from green to gold. Sunrise on a clear, calm day brings the forest to life and a golden glow to the landscape. The towering aspens cast long shadows across the ground, alive with the gold leaves of autumn.
