Fall Split
As the colors fall to the ground in the high country, they start exploding down in the metro area where it's easy to see beauty right in your backyard.

I’ve been planning on making a trip over to Star K Ranch / Morrison Nature Center ever since the trees started changing.  I finally had the chance when my son’s school was going on a field trip there!  Nothing is better than spending time with your son on a beautiful Colorado morning and looking at the fall colors.  We had a lot of fun going for a short hike around and through the trees looking for all sorts of things like bugs, water, trees, logs, and wildlife of all sorts.  As we were wondering around, this tree caught my eye and the light was hitting it perfectly.  Luckily, I was able to switch lenses real quick to my wide angle, and let the group go on a little ways while I captured this shot.  Trees are one of my favorite things to shoot, especially big dead trees, so this had the best of both worlds.
