Mount Sneffels Fall Color Show

by David Kingham

After a long fall color trip in Colorado last year I returned home briefly before heading back out after a fresh snow covered the San Juan Mountains. I knew this combination of snow and fall colors would be incredible, but wouldn't last long. I finally got around to editing these images just before the fall colors are about to start up again here in Colorado.
Equipment: Canon 5D MKII, 24-104 f4

This is a beautiful. After living in Colorado this is a wonderful reminder of how beautiful it is.

I climbed Sneffels in 1995. I drove a friends Suzuki Samarii from Telluride to Ouray. During the trip I made the summit and signed the log. On my way up I noticed a memorial that turned out to be for a young woman that fell.

Wish I’d taken your shot. Great job!

…so very pretty, David! Fall is my most favorite season of the year & I just love all the beautiful leaves & their many colors. Keep up the fabulous work, as it does bring joy to those who truly do appreciate it!

I love how the color contrasts accentuate the rolling contours of the shoulders of the mountain. The textures, colors, composition, and depth of field all work together for a terrific photo. Thanks for sharing.

This is truly gorgeous. The contrast of the white blue mountains and the Fall colors is perfectly caught.

— OH! The sky too. What beautiful sky. The colors and pattern in the sky are the perfect backdrop for the dramatic scene. All three worked together for you to catch this beautiful moment in time. I’m both touched and amazed.
