Artist's Palette No 2
Living in Oklahoma, I am graced with the opportunity to see some of the finest Fall colors the world has to offer. This time of year you must be prepared to leave on a moment's notice to experience the 'peak' of intensity around the state. Almost every corner of Oklahoma offers a show that seldom disappoints.
In this image, you are witnessing a single moment in time on a morning spent along the rim of Red Rock Canyon State Park. I could not have asked for a better view. Nearly every element of color and texture offered in the canyon are visible in this scene. Some years in the canyon you find the colors just stunning as seen in this image, affording view after view of vibrant radiance, while other years seem to come and go so quickly that if you blink you missed it. But when Nature puts on her finest in the canyon, it is a splendor not soon forgotten.
