Spring Mountain Ranch State Park is located 15 miles west of Las Vegas, via Blue Diamond Rd., in the Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. The many springs in these mountains provided water for Paiute Indians and later brought mountain men and early settlers to the area. This 520 acre oasis was developed into a combination working ranch and luxurious retreat by a string of owners who have given the area a long and colorful history. Past owners of the ranch included Chester Lauck of the comedy team “Lum & Abner,” German actress Vera Krupp, and millionaire Howard Hughes. (From Official Web Site)

The colored tree stands well against the steep cliff and I like the overall light. The white fence sure gives the ranch mood and the table under the tree is inviting.

A great view of the lawn, the magnificent trees and the dark mountain in the background. The light and colors are very fine and the bench under the tree has to be a perfect place for a rest.

Hi Eleu, An awesome Autumn view of this ranch with splendid colours. The white fence decorated the whole composition with artistic mood. The picnic table is a treat to it too. The huge mountain in the BG definitely adds to the beauty the composition. Thank for sharing and Happy New Year

I like how the mountain range forms a distinct backdrop to the yellow leafed trees in Fall. Good sharpness and the blue grey shadow areas at the back set up a wonderful warm vs cold color contrast. The empty picnic table signals the end of warm summer days. Tfs!

Autumn's generally a more productive time photographically as shown here, in such a brilliant light and shadows. I love the perspective and it's not just the gorgeous colours but the composition with the beautiful tree leads the eyes so nicely to explore the fantastic ranch and the backdrop. Would love a walk down that green lawn. Roll on Beautiful Fall! A really peaceful shot indeed, Congrats.

This looks like a very pleasant place, far from the artificial world of Las Vegas, but apparently close enough. This photo really conveys a feeling of peace and quiet and also some very attractive colours.

What a magnificent scenery Eleu, that bench invites the viewers to come and sit under the big tree, remarkable autumn colors, perfect sharpness, the rocky mountain and the wooden barrier in the bg add more interest to the landscape, all the best, have a nice day
