Frosted Pine Trees Surrounding Colorful Aspens

Once again I went to Aspen for the fall season. It was more colorful than last year with many red, orange, green, and yellow colors. The aspen trees seem to glow in this image. What happened was this was shot early morning when the first snow of the year fell and stuck to the trees. The sky was cloudy, but then started to clear up making gaps in the cloud cover. This image was taken right when the sun poked out and illuminated the aspen trees. A bit of luck!!! Love those. It was taken around 10 miles east of Aspen, Colorado.
