It is upon us. The edge of winter that is. It’s a beautiful time of year with autumn colors broacasted across the hillsides and mountain slopes. It is especially beautiful when a snowfall comes a little early, before the leaves have fallen, and the white decorates the leafed out trees. This happened when I was in the Yukon Territory, in Kluane National Park this week.
I took this photo with Canon’s new 500mm version II. I use the 500 for landscapes often, and while it does not serve as a great test for the lens, it worked beautifully. I took a series of these images and stitched them into a panorama, this being one of four.
