ABC Wednesday: Y is for Yellow Fall Color

The fall color in the Northeast is dominate by the red color of the red maple trees.  When we traveled in the Sierra Mountain last fall, we discovered that its fall color is dominated by the yellow leaves of aspen trees.  Here are several images that we took at Lee Vining Canyon.

When we drove through the Tioga Road from Yosemite National Park to Eastern Sierra, the road took us to Lee Vining on the shore of Mono Lake.  Under the setting sun, we could look down from the mountain into the Lee Vining Canyon that was dotted with aspen trees in its most brilliant fall Yellow color.

Later on during a brillient fall afternoon, we have the opportunity to follow the small river into the Canyon and had a closer view of the Aspen forest.

Inside the forest, I got a perfect shot of the sun star through the Yellow aspen trees.

This is one of our favorite, a small brook winding its way through the aspen forest.

Multicolor leaves in rapid flowing stream make such a beautiful image!

This first photo is wonderful! The yellow simply pops right off the page against the green backdrop. What a beautiful place.

The contrast of the yellow against the starkness of the rocky areas is tremendous. All of your captures are terrific.
