We went leaf peeping in RNMP last Oct with the relatives and I had them drop me off at one of the enclosed areas where the Elk do not have access. In this area was a little stream and on part of the stream was a blanket of Aspen leaves. The sun was shining on them just right. I like the fact that one little leave is brown/grey and the rest are yellow. There is always a standout in every crowd.

Lovely! I love the colour and the odd droplets, and I'm a sucker for allover patterns from nature.

I love the tones in this and how the individual leaves retain their identity yet foster a larger sense of themselves as a whole. The various small droplets of a soon to be progressing Autumn are also a nice touch, as is the one single one which is upside down. Beautiful blending of colours.

Beautiful golden yellow colors. Love the one leaf that is turned upside down, standing out from the rest. Nice detail and lighting. Well shot.

I like the one leaf that stands out. Nice color. For some reason it doesn't seem very sharp, that would be my only criticism.

Beautiful colors of gold and orange. It is like waves/ripples on the surface of the water. Texture, shape, and color are all spectacular in this shot.
