This image was shot with my Canon 40D and Canon 24 - 70mm lens. The best time of the year varies for this location. This image was shot on October 1st. The previous year the colorful leaves had already spent and the entire area was dusted with snow, on the same day of the year.
North Lake has breath-takingly awesome color with yellow, orange and red hues of Aspen leaves painting the mountainside and reflecting on the water. The peak colors are from late September to early October and rather short-lived due to the high altitude and Fall Snow storms.
