Natural landscapes: the colours of Muleshoe
AUTUMN AT MULESHOE PICNIC AREA, BANFF NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
The western Canadian province of Alberta doesn’t get the brilliant reds of the maple trees in central and eastern Canada, but we do pretty well with eye-popping yellows and oranges of poplars and aspens (seen here), along with larches that grow at higher altitudes. Besides the colour, what attracted me to this scene was the light-dark contrast between the trees and mountains.

Awesome colours and a very nice capture, Frank. Autumn is my favourite time of year. 🙂
Wishing you a great weekend.
Beautiful, Frank! That’s the kind of color we get here when we are lucky enough to have autumn. Mainly yellow, but with a lot of green Most of the trees here in the desert are non-native and evergreens.
Ah my favorite season. Magnificent!
Stunning photo, Frank. I liked the juxtaposition of the seasonal beauty, changing leaf colors, beside the monumental rock formation, anchored in permanence. Vibrant colors are spectacular.
We don’t get colours quite like this in the UK. I wish we did. A clever choice of viewpoint with the line of trees echoing the ridge line.
