'Aspen Ridge...'
(Layers and Layers of Color)
Dixie National Forest - Scenic Byway 12, near Torrey, Utah.

I could not believe what I was seeing... The blue in the shadows on the next ridge. Then closer, compressed by our long lens - an Aspen Grove, bursting it's last color before the wind steals all it's shimmer, sending each leaf to the forest floor... How fortunate to have been in this place for one of the few days between fall and winter...
