Under ideal conditions (peaking autumn color, snow capped mountains, something happening in the sky, good light) it is almost impossible to not get intoxicated by grand landscapes in the San Juan Mountains of Colorado. I took so many of these, they are almost oozing out of my hard drive. Anybody need one? This is what it was like for two amazing days. It reinforces the old adage that one of the secrets of good landscape photography is that you have to keep going back to the same locations over and over again. This was my fourth visit and the first three were either not at peak, no snow, or no clouds, etc. etc.

What a wonderful image. You hit the trifecta. Great colors. Beautiful clouds and light on the mountains and a dusting of snow on the peaks. There might not be a better place to be than the San Juan’s in the fall. I wouldn’t change a thing on how you processed this beautiful image.
Nice balance and weather conditions here. I feel it is just a tad warm though, I’d like to feel the light more by those shadows going cooler. I think you could achieve this with a slight white balance adjustment.
