Aspen Layers

Shooting the autumn colors in the mountains is fun but really difficult. In a way, it's been done and I prefer to make photos that are new. On this particular shot I hiked a few miles back into the high country of the Eastern Sierra and found this visually stunning and diverse scene. In the foreground are sage brush and aspen trees just beginning their transition from green to yellow. There is a vein of conifers and aspens that made their way up the hillside growing on a thin ledge that added that unique flavor and accented color to the shot. In the distance is the entrance to the steep and rugged John Muir Wilderness.
