Scenic Sunday, Mellow Yellow / Aspen Grove at Lee Vining Creek, Eastern Sierras, California USA

Click on photo to enlarge!
I think these will be the last fall color photos I will post for this year.
I have wanted a shot like this for a long time and I finally found just the right place to get it.
This is an Aspen grove in the Eastern Sierras (Lee Vining Creek) in California.
I am sure the trees are bare by now but this is how they looked on October 17th, about 2 weeks ago.

This one was all alone on a hillside near June Lake, California (Eastern Sierras).

These are like a painted piece if art. The colors blend slowly.

Carolyn, I know EXACTLY where you took that June Lake photo! HA! I was there, too, a couple of weeks ago. This weekend, we are heading to Flagstaff to check out their aspens!

Both these colors and the trees are so different than what I see in my tropical world. Beautiful autumn compositions.

Absolutely gorgeous Carolyn. Have a great weekend.

Beautiful trees and light! The only trouble with Fall is that it doesn't last long enough.

Leah said...

Super shots, Carolyn. I love the yellow behind the bare birch trunks, and the awesome color of the second photo.
