Great find with your island of gold seemingly floating on lake of turquoise. The contrast between the island of gold and the muted nature of the background mountain slop really serves to make the golden hue of aspen trees stand out strongly in the image.

I find myself wanting to crop up from the bottom edge to the point of the shoreline reaching into the lake.

What I love about this picture is that there is there are no other colors any where else in the vast background which is so unusual. As Jan said, that is a great fine. It's like finding a nuget of gold. Well done.

Thanks Jan & Gerry for your comments - I think I agree about the crop
Jan. Here's another shot of "Island of Gold" I liked.

What a wonderful shot. The poplar leaves really stand out in the fall. A small nit, I get a feeling of a slight tilt.

Love your fall photos, Barry.

Great autumn shots Barry - I would have liked just a little more detail in the dark trees on the left in the OP.

One last shot of the island.

Agree with Gerry that the lack of colors elsewhere makes this great! Thanks for posting, this
is the best nature photo I´ve seen in a while. And, unlike many others, it does not look
enhanced - a big plus (and I don´t care if it in fact is).
