October 5, 2012 – Aspens at Kebler Pass

Aspen grove at Kebler Pass

Friday, October 5, 2012

The next entry in the series of shots I got on my fall color trip to Colorado last weekend comes from Kebler Pass, west of Crested Butte. A lot of the state was past the peak for colors, but the west side of Kebler Pass was flat-out unreal. HUGE aspen groves that were just bursting with riotous color. The phrase “breathtaking” gets tossed around lightly a lot these days, but it truly applied here – the views gave me tingles. Amazing, amazing, amazing.

I’m going to take a break over the weekend, then next week I’ll post some more shots from my trip.

Notes: Canon EOS Rebel T1i, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8 lens. 1/250s, f/8, ISO 200. Focal length: 42mm.
