    Great pics; crystal clear, brilliant colors, and awe-inspiring subject matter.

    From the "DSC", I'm guessing you were using a Nikon?

    Very nice.

    And that's from someone used to the reds and browns of the Northeast.

    stay safe.

    The Ginkgo trees in and around Richmond turn a brilliant yellow gold - there are some around the perimeter of the triangle park at Park Ave. & N. Lombardy St.

    You might have trouble getting by the odor that accompanies their foliage change though.

    As I recall, the Ginko biloba female tree drops its fruit cones at the same time as leaf fall. They're soft and full of butyric acid and smell of rancid butter and puke.

    We nerds learned to make butyric acid in HS chemistry (when real chemistry was taught) and had evil plans for it. When the plans were found out the vial was ditched behind the pool changing house. Oh my did the detention fly!

    Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.

    Sony NEX-7; Sony 18-55mm lens, generally shot on the lower end. The NEX series are mirrorless DSLR cameras. Same sensors (24.3 MP), same everything but without the mirror and mechanism about half the weight of other DSLR cameras.


    Pictures are from the top of the Grand Mesa, the worlds largest flat top mountain, just east of Grand Junction, CO.

    Me too, raised in southern Indiana, but I think I can live with the predominately yellow of the aspens.
