Photographer's Note

Glorious September! How I wish it were here right now!

This was taken just above the Sundance ski resort in Provo Canyon. This is the back side of famous Mt. Timpanogas, or Timp as it's known locally. The fall colors were beginning to come out, and so while there's a bit of red there is also quite a lot of green still. This was one of my more fun trips, along the beautiful Alpine Loop, but a lot of the shots didn't turn out. However, this one and several others did, and I've been waiting to post it for some time. I have no idea why I didn't before now.

I brought the brightness down quite a bit (it was a tad overexposed), decreased the contrast very slightly, and brought the tone of the sky down slightly. I also sharpened it in Neat Image. Otherwise, I made no changes to the picture. Those vibrant reds are essentially what my camera caught on this beautiful morning. This was taken probably twenty minutes or a half hour after sunrise. Can't wait until the snow is gone to go up again! Let me know what you think.
