    I am ready for fall to arrive. Very few monsoons here when I have been home so I sit idyll at my keyboard wishing the time away.

    This is Sneffels Peak in Colorado.

    Sweet shot with some nice aspen colors.

    I am in the same boat - chasing through my archives and noting when I got colors in various places while trying to decide where all I will be trying to go and the best times to be in each destination.

    Ha ha Doug! I am still out shooting Wildflowers and you are trying to make me fall envious. The rate it’s going for me I might just be shooting wildflowers all the way up to Fall colors.

    Doug, you should come to Colorado to shoot wildflowers -- still going strong!
    Beautiful shot of Sneffels.

    Thanks, Monika. I sure wish I could, but I am leaving for Nova Scotia and PEI on Tuesday and I can't sandwich Colorado into my schedule.

    Great composition and light and autun can't come soon enough although I am off to the South West coast of Scotland to photograph for a few days. You get the sunshine and tremendoes mountains, we get a small country where we don't need to travel very far to get a complete change of scene. Ken

    I have always wanted to go to Scotland, Ken. A lot of the history of geology was worked out there by some of the most famous geologists to ever live. Scots Charles Lyell and James Hutton were instrumental in figuring out the basic principles of geology which still form the foundation of the science today.

    Have fun on your trip.
