Colorado fall foliage is a favorite among nature photographers and most color appears to peak by this weekend. I am in the state for about two weeks speaking at the Telluride Photo Festival last weekend and then running a workshop in Ouray that starts tomorrow.
I have not seen everything but have had the chance to photograph in a few areas as well as get some reports from other photographers. I have been on the Hwy 145, Telluride side of the San Juan Mountains and also along Hwy 550, the Million Dollar Hwy, between Molas Pass and Ouray. Here is what I know and have heard as of today.
