A forest of color leads to one of the most prominent mountains in Colorado. After dropping fresh snow on the peaks an autumn storm parted just enough to let the morning light spill out. My favorite scene of the season. My friend and I spent an hour driving around in the dark trying to find a spot for sunrise but we weren't having luck. We ended up just sleeping along the road close to the spot we thought was the best and it couldn't have worked out better. A beautiful ranch setting leading up to amazing aspens and stellar peaks!
