[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
For the past several weeks I have been posting images taken during our trip to Montana and Wyoming last September. I feel it is time to move on to more current images. But... I thought I would post one more and end with a "Blaze of Glory". We left Grand Teton National Park and traveled west along Highway 26. Just east of the town of Alpine, summer was indeed going out with a "Blaze of Glory". I really liked the white Aspen tree trunks, the still green foliage and all that red! Niek sometmes comments on "American Colors" as compared with the more sutble Dutch colors. I have to admit there is nothing subtle here!

Hello Evelyn,
What a beautifull shot, the red and green is so special.
I love the scene.
Thanks a lot

Awesome Evelynn!
Autumn colour in all it's glory. I love to see the reds during the fall, they are a nice compliment to the shades of green and grey. Just beautiful!
TFS Janice

Such vibrant colours Evelynn!

I love the layers of white to green to red and finally to blue. Sharpness is very evident and so is perfect exposure.
Well done


Hi Evelynn,
Reds, greens and whites in great harmony. Excellent detail and composition. TFS
Best wishes,

Beautiful view with nice vivid colours.

Hello Evelynn,
What a wonderful scene vibrant with colours. It looks almost unreal. I love the different patterns too and the white Aspen trunks look terrific. Brilliant composition!
Many thanks, Ulla

Hermosos contrastes muy bien presentados. Muy agradables colores que atraen la mirada de forma que resulta muy llamativo.
Saludos, JL.

Hello Evelynn what lovely colours I like the combination of the red blue and green. super sharpness and detail I like the inclusion of the bare sandstone as its well placed in the composition to make a focal point. TFS rgds Necip.

Hi Evelynn,
This is just a outstanding landscape and it is all about COLOR, thanks for sharing.

Hi Evelyn.
Amazing photo. Technically perfect picture. Excellent composition. Very well done. tfs. Stev

bonjour evelynn
c'est une veritable palette de couleurs qui compose cette photo!
on differencie bien les differentes essences au fur et a mesure de l'altitude.

Hi Evelynn,
Great to see you post a landscape photo again. I almost though that you stayed on the other side. :)
The color contrast in this photo is just amazing, and lives up to the American colors that a simple Dutchmen would expect to see. They are really amazing. As you mentioned the white Aspen tree trunks are wonderful. I really like the layers of colors you captured. Starting with green and ending in the intens blue of the sky. Nothing compared with a dull fall day in the Netherlands.

P.S. This, this and no that :)

Hello Evelynn

A wonderful vista of colour.The colours are well saturated and the reds really sing.They really look good against the blue sky.A very nice perspective.Postcard quality shot.TFS


Hi Evelynn, wonderful view of trees with splendid colors, great sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Evelynn,
I'm really surprised by the intensity of the autumn colours, nothing like this around my place!
Well framed scenery with sharp fine details, all topped by this beautiful blue sky!
Pablo -

A great shot - we just don't get autumn colours like this in the UK either. I agree, the white aspen trunks add a nice vertical element, that is sort of carried upwards by the pine/fir trees.

Hi Evelynn,
the different colors of the trees are amazing. It is really an impressive shot and shows the beauty of autumn,
(Points tomorrow!)

Bonjour Evelynn

What a breath-taking palette of colors, Evelynn.
Really amazingly beautiful... All the shades of greens and reds, with those thin white lines in between.
A gorgeous composition. I like the texture of the trees, especially of the green ones in the foreground. The white trunks really add contrast and definition to the scene.
TFS. : )
