Rural landscapes: autumn on the epic landscape


There are plenty of nameless dirt roads running off the Cowboy Trail and I took one in hopes of finding compelling fall photos. It was while returning to the trail that I spotted this distant vista.
A telephoto lens drew the scene closer and eliminated the hazy, distracting sky. I actually waited for the occasional vehicle to pass so I could include one for scale.
Nikon D7100, tripod, 70-300 mm. zoom lens, polarizing filter.
