Autumn Color at Night

Red Mountain Mining District, Colorado, 2014

Crystal Lake sits between Ouray and Red Mountain Pass and is surrounded by spectacular color in the fall.  A moonless night, a clear sky, no wind, and not much vehicle traffic made for an unforgettable scene.  Because of the weather, the phase of the moon, and the timing of the leaves' changing, this was the only night in 2014 when making an image like this was possible.  The image is a combination of four photos:  two 8-minute exposures for the foreground and two 25-second exposures for the stars.
