I will have to echo @Harley_Goldman’s thoughts on this lovely array of color, Mike. I particularly like the inclusion of some leafless trees in the scene as it helps tell the story of the transitions of the seasons.Great job of extracting this scene from the mountainside.
Mike, this is the best of this type of image I can recall seeing. Lovely fall color, and the arrangement of the trees in the frame is perfect.
There are a couple branches protruding into the frame in the LLC that could be cloned or cropped, and the shortest bare treetop in the lower right is a bit of an eye magnet for me, but both of these are minor.
