A colorful photograph of yellow, orange, and green Fall foliage in Park City, Utah

|| Bright, colorful scrub oaks make for a visual explosion of foliage just off the trail in Park City, Utah. Every year there’s a flood of amazing photos from the outdoor photographers in this area. Last year I took handheld flashes out into the woods and lit a number of these trees at dusk. This year it felt right to just wander and see where the trail would take me. I’m glad I did. ||


|| Fall’s colors can be quick to fade some years, and quick to accumulate snow other years. The trees in Park City, Utah seem to hold their color longer than most, so I grabbed my camera when I heard that it was going to snow at high altitude. All it took was a little bit of exploration on some of the dirt roads in Summit Park and this little stand of trees presented itself. With a backdrop of evergreens for contrast, I couldn’t have asked for a more appealing setup. ||
