Aspens on Fire
Posted By: deadwolfbones, 10-02-2009, 03:38 PM

Yep, it's that time of the year again...

Went out after work to catch the color change at the aptly named "Aspen Vista" trail. Took the DA 35, DA 70, and A 100/2.8.

Beautiful stuff. #4 is fantastic! I'm hoping to head for some high sierra shooting this weekend, and I'll be stealing your #4 composition for sure ... I must admit after such a weak fire season, I was hoping to see a real fire so somebody could get some overtime this summer, but I figured it'd be fall colors (which I suppose are better after all).

Thanks! That's that DA 35 magic. Really is an incredible lens. Of course the landscape helps too.

#4 was my favorite as well. The A100/2.8 really seems to render colors well, and the low light hitting those yellow and red aspens was AMAZING when used as bokeh.

Hah, I'm out at 5:30pm, and then it's a 15-minute drive up the mountain.

And thanks!

Lovely colours rendered here. First two show off its brilliance.
5 and 7 are just stunning also.
Well done with these.
