2011 Top 10 #5 – Autumn Rainbow

Autumn Rainbow, originally uploaded by tomkellyphoto.

Fall of 2011 was simply amazing – color everywhere and extending for over six weeks. The one thing that was missing in our own Wasatch Mountains, though, were reds. So it was a quick car stopper when we ventured up the Mirror Lake Highway towards the High Uintahs and found this amazing patch of red, green and yellow.

This is a longer telephoto look at a grove of trees not far from Soapstone Basin. It was photographed with a Nikon D700 fitted with a Nikkor 70-300 lens on a Manfrotto tripod. single shot, no HDR.

Of all the many dozens of selects I chose from this past fall, this one has always stood out in my mind for the vividness and diversity of the color.

It was, literally, an Autumn Rainbow!
