Hope Valley Aspens

I cannot resist clouds. We so seldom have wonderful clouds here in the Bay Area. But up in the Sierras, the clouds on this afternoon were glorious, and seeing them just behind these brightly colored orange aspens near Red Lake...well, I could not resist this mid day shot!

Being a working bloke, I am, many times, forced to take shots during lunch hour...what else can you do? I have come to refer to myself, at times, as a "Mid-day Bandido"...Well this one is magnificent, Barbara! There is certainly nothing about this beautiful image that I have a problem with! I think it is gorgeous and masterfully done..Bravo and here's to the "Mid-day Banditos!

I also love those big clouds against a bright blue sky. The color of the aspen trees makes this a classic western scene for me.

The whites of the clouds, the blues of the sky and the oranges/ yellows/ golden/ greens of the trees make this capture simply lively
