Virginia Lakes begins to turn harsh in early October. The nights drop below freezing at 9.800 foot elevation here at today's snow line. The cold nights snap some colors into the aspens just before the wind strips the leaves right off. Snow may be seen falling at higher elevations and it was falling on me when I took this panorama. The dramatic weather is one of the best and one of the worst aspects of this time of year.

This one might make a very good large print after I remove the flare using the adjacent frame's image. Sunward shots have the advantage of making the leaves look like transparencies, but the disadvantage of flare.
