The Rockies are usually awash with color in late September, especially in my favorite viewing spot, the San Juans! The towns of Telluride, Ouray, and Ridgeway are great launching pads to view the spectacular scenery.
Telluride features the most impressive mountains which can be viewed from what’s often referred to as the San Juan Scenic Byway. There are also some amazing jeep roads, which while hair-raising to drive on, provide unique views. My favorite of the latter is called the Last Dollar Road which connects the town of Telluride to Ridgeway.
A new tool I’m using this year is an aerial drone. This game-changing device allows me to get in shooting positions only a helicopter could previously reach. A bomber vehicle for capturing remote fall colors. The drone can easily grab photos in locations over 2 miles away!
Speaking of animal viewing, I had the op to shoot at a ranch in Westcliffe, Colo! Early morning provided some spectacular lighting!
