Fall Colors in Wyoming
Most people think of the eastern US as being a mecca for fall colors. I’ve never been to the east, so I can’t really comment on that. I do know that the fall colors in Wyoming are remarkably beautiful. I am so glad we got to see some beautiful fall colors there, because all the leaves in Utah are just drying up and turning brown.
Wyoming is the only place I have been where some of the aspens turn red. They are amazing, and so different from the standard yellow aspen leaves.
A couple weeks ago we had a little snow overnight. I headed to the Moulton barns, knowing that the snow on the Tetons would make for great photos.
This is the T.A. Moulton barn.
And this is the John Moulton barn. Both of them iconic, and the most photographed barns in the world.
One evening we went exploring, and walking. I had to stop at this little stream and get some reflection shots. The yellow cottonwood trees were such a fantastic yellow. Just golden.
More vibrant aspen trees. Looking up.
One thing that was an absolute must for me, and every other photographer, is Oxbow bend in the fall. We got up early one morning to be there as the sun came up. I hiked up a hill to get a different view, and get away from all the other photographers that were there. I was glad I did, because this shot of the Snake river with early morning fog was worth it.
And of course, Mount Moran reflected is the best. Especially with good fall colors.
We stopped at Jackson Lake that same morning. The reflection was beautiful and I created this panorama photo from a couple of shots.
I love fall, I call it the golden time. The air is different, the colors are vibrant, it’s my favorite. What about you, do you love fall?
I’m really hoping this post goes out when I have it scheduled for. The past couple of days, WordPress has been a fail in that department. So fingers crossed.
