Telluride, Colorado

Fall 2003

This fall presented me with a golden photography opportunity.  For the first time, I had the privilege of watching the spectacular process by which aspen trees shed their leaves.  Faced with the prospect of losing my favorite refuge, my parent's basement, I moved to Telluride, CO - one of America's most beautiful towns and a prime spot in which to view fall colors.  In addition, I didn't have a real job (not unusual), so I spent my time beating around the nearby hills looking for some of the pictures you see here.  Enjoy.
