Colorado’s San Juan Mountains in Autumn
For me, landscape photography sells almost 2:1 better than wildlife. My most popular theme is Autumn photography in Colorado.
Sometimes I take the scenic beauty in Colorado for granted. I’ve been doing this for long enough, going to my normal haunts around the state begin to feel redundant.
What I’ve discovered is to not concentrate on the iconic locations and scenes, photographed by thousands, over and over.
These days I spend more time looking for scenery in the nooks and crannies along the back roads. Areas that one doesn’t normally associate with group workshops and camera club outings.
I don’t recall ever seeing a photograph of this location, though the area is heavily covered by shutterbugs.
The best days are when you find small surprises.
San Juan Mountains – Colorado
After three weeks of website work, I’m taking Friday off. My mind is burnt and I’m daydreaming about getting into the mountains.
Today’s photo was taken near Ridgway, Colorado a few years back.
I’ve visited this location many times over the years. It’s a grand view and the variation in weather, sky and autumn color from year to year always makes for a new and interesting scene.
I’ll be working in the San Juans this Autumn and taking bookings for private photo tours. Check out my main website for more information.

Ridgway is normally where I work from when doing Autumn photography in the San Juan Mountains. It provides good access to The Million Dollar Highway, the Dallas Divide and Last Dollar Road area. There’s a good pizza joint in Ridgway too.
