In Pursuit of Fall

Rock Wall Up the Canyon
11x14
I headed up the Alamosa River Canyon with one thing on my mind " Fall Colors".  I was hoping that the colors would be changing up in the high country by now but, alas, the Aspens are for the most part just green- oh, there are a few golds here and there, but I will have to wait a few days and then try again. I saw this rock wall on the way up and have always thought about painting it and never have - until yesterday. The shadows were right and I dived in- it was a nice intimate scene and I was happy with the result.
