Golden Hour on the Dallas Divide

This Colorado fall color photo depicts the iconic Dallas Divide and San Juan Mountain range as light from the late afternoon skips across the valley and lights up the trees with a golden hue. Typically this area is best photographed in the early morning, but I couldn’t miss a chance to catch that afternoon light. The clouds helped add further drama to the scene by adding a dappling of natural light. An afternoon I surely won’t forget.
