Colorful Colorado at dusk. Autumn 2017 Victoria Lise

Colored By Colorado | Day to Dusk

While the colors of fall seem to have shifted to golden grass and bare aspens I am still reeling in the vibrancy of this seasons colors. We had our first snow fall that blanketed the valley in nearly 8 inches of fresh white snow. Although the mountain peaks had been dusted in white for a few weeks prior it hadn’t yet affected the leaves below tree-line until the temperatures dropped bringing the snow down to 8, 885 feet. Our days are sunny and warm but the jaw dropping landscapes filled with color are behind us as we draw closer to winters season. It’s hard to believe I was worried about autumns approach when I would now consider it a highlight of 2017.  Below I’ve showcased some of my favorite spots during the bright light of day and soft, warm evening light. Whether fall has touched down by you yet or not I hope you’re still in the mood for more of colorful Colorado!

    1. Thank you so very much, Denise! Wow, thats a nice little amount of snow! We have yet to see much in town but the high country has been covered for the last couple of weeks. It has still be relatively warm here during the days which is different than I remember from previous years but maybe its just that we have less snow than we than I remember. Hope you have a great weekend!
