Fall Perspectives of Mill A Basin

Our mountain images of Fall can have such stark contrasts sometimes…the below image is from October of this year, looking across Mill A Basin and out into Big Cottonwood Canyon….

…and this last image is looking across the basin from a slightly different angle…just by turning to the right a few degrees…but taken in September of last year when all of the Aspen were still covered in their golden robes…..

    • This location provides some excellent vistas, Allen…you’ve seen many photos here that were taken at this same spot.

    • It’s almost mesmerizing sometimes….

  3. What a great sight those aspens are. I hope I’ll get to see some like those one day.

    • I hope you have your camera with you when you do, Steve. 🙂

  4. Looking pretty chilly there, Scott, but worth the hike for sure. With wind chill, we have 10 F here in Omaha today. I’m ready for it, too!

    • It was a brisk morning, Gary…and definitely worth the hike. Ten degrees is a bit cooler than we’ve had so far this year, but I imagine we’re in-store for it. Bundle-up, my friend. 🙂

  5. What a beautiful valley and the colour fo those trees, magnificent Scott!

    • Thank you very much, Adrian…but I think I had the easy part…just showing-up with the camera. 🙂

  6. Interesting comparison – I do like the way you “interpret” (I don’t like that word, but…) your neck of the woods for readers.

    • No, Lynn…not a whole lot of interpreting going on here…just a bit of sharing, maybe…presenting…? But whatever it is…thank you…I’m glad you like it. 🙂

  7. Oh those golden Aspens!! Magnificent!!

    November 25, 2013 at 1:22 pm

    • They really are, Susan. 🙂

  8. LB

    I can just imagine standing there and then turning ever so slightly to the right to see those Aspens!! Stunning!

    • It’s a trip, LB, when you’re standing there and you can see the whole valley lit up like that…it’s truly incredible.

  9. Ooops, this one almost got lost in the shuffle somehow. I’m glad I found (rescued) it. This is a lovely comparison shot. I’ve noticed the last couple of years that October seems to bring more haze. It’s hard to tell in your shot, but did you notice it in your mountains, too?

    • I haven’t noticed a particular difference in the months, but the haze does seem to be more of a common thing throughout the year. People mention that the skies here are much less clear than they used to be…increased mining and quarrying operations, in addition to the growing hordes of vehicle driving people…but yes, the haze does drift into the canyons…and we just need a good weather system to blow it out again….weekly would be nice, but people would complain…cuz that’s what people do. 😉

      • Gosh! I wouldn’t know anyone who likes to mutter or complain….. 😉

        November 26, 2013 at 2:43 pm

        • About the weather…? Well….no…I don’t know anyone, either? 😉

  10. The yellow is incredible! Aspens have to be among the most interesting and beautiful of trees. The angle is wonderful too. 🙂
