Fall has officially arrived in Colorado, early but brilliant none the less. I love this time of the year, it is my favorite and it is the time of the year yours truly looks forward to being able to do what I do best; photography. This was photographed today at one of my favorite locations, Knights Of Pythias cemetery outside of Central City. This place is the real deal, containing
the graves and headstones of those who first settled the town during it's gold rush heyday in the 1800s. Walking around in here you get a real sense of not only being alone but calm as well. It is kind of spooky but also very tranquil too.
For this shot I really wanted to get the glow that was happening as the sunlight was soaking up and reflecting against the colorful Aspen trees. I really liked how the gate played into the scene with the pathway, as if calling to visitors to come in. Stunning stuff and I can't wait to get back up here in the coming days!
