18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Fall Dance

Late on a fall day, undulating aspens near Telluride show off their fall beauty. I arrived a bit early that and enjoyed the fall air till the last few moments of sun kissed the hillside with warm light and a cool breeze. These trees are created by unstable soil which slowly slips down the hill. The trees slowly adjust and reach for the sky. The trees are located on the edge a massive snow slide area.
