Fall colors along the Gunella Pass Road
Lens: Sigma 17-70mm Camera: K20D Photo Location: Guanella Pass, Colorado ISO: 100

I took these along Guanella Pass last week. I used a Cokin circular polarizer on most of these. Comments are always welcome.

That's a tough exposure with bright yellow trees and so much else dark! For color it's great. I wonder if knocking down the exposure for detail in the aspen would just turn the evergreens into dark blobs... ?

It is a tricky business balancing the bright yellow with the dark evergreens without blowing out one end. The polarizer does help with the colors though at high altitudes (these were all above 8000') it doesn't take much for the sky to turn almost black.
