Autumn Colors and Termination Dust

Fall colors & fresh snow, or "termination dust" as Alaskans refer to it, dusting the mountains of Eagle River Valley, October 1, 2015. I was out at this spot twice last week to get a photo of the valley in autumn to complete my four-season collage. I wasn't entirely happy with what I came away with so after the rain and snow let up and the skies cleared, I hiked back out to Dew Mound today to give it one more shot. I'm much happier with today's image, the white-capped mountains add a dramatic touch that conveys the changing season and impending winter. I will post the collage as soon as it is complete and add it to my online store as well.
