San Juan Autumn #4. This photo could be subtitled “The End of The Road Barn”, because that’s where we found it, west of Durango. It was drizzling when I captured this image, and the soft, even storm light brought out the wide array of fall colors among the scrub oaks and other bushes on the background hill, the distant aspens on the slopes of the La Plata range (part of the San Juan Mountains), and even the pasture’s grasses. There’s something very peaceful in a rainy, rustic scene like this one.
Tech info: Nikon D850 camera with Nikon 28-300mm lens at 35mm, 1/400 sec. at f11, ISO 250.
