Maple Leaves, Iron City, Colorado

Maple Leaves, Iron City

Colorado is known for its aspens, its mountains and its skiing, among other things; maple trees, especially at the higher altitudes, don’t often get much press. One June, as I drove the Iron City road in central Colorado, I found this lone maple tree with a branch highlighted in diffused light from a cloudy sky. The red stems perfectly complemented the new green leaves’ color, and from that spot came this image.
