Extreme Autumn: Fall in Colorado is an energetic rendition of what is otherwise a serene season. Forget gentle ponds with floating leaves. Toss the countryside red barn and maple tree out the door. And don’t even think about that orange maple tree gracing that burial preplanning pamphlet. This is autumn Colorado Rockies style: high altitude, extreme, dangerous, and thought-provoking.
Focusing on Aspen and Summit County, the book delivers autumn from a plethora of angles: steep mountainsides, high-altitude lake shores, under full moon, river beds, in the snow, and best of all: from above with an airplane. There is nothing ordinary about fall here – it is filled with contrast at every turn – gentle and harsh, warm and cold, summery and in the snow. Some aspen stands nurse forest wildlife, other trees are a stubborn symbol of defiance growing on top of a rock glacier.
Containing over 80 images, the book is an excellent way to enjoy all that Colorado has to offer without risking your life. The book is available in print and as an e-book and all images can be ordered through my SmugMug site as digital, print, canvas, and framed prints.
