This is a shot I've waited to get for years. The location is known as "Windy Gap", west of Granby. The reason it has taken me so long is because it isn't too often that I'm in this area in the late afternoon when the sun is just right. Getting the shot with fall colors was something I always considered to be "icing on the cake". Then, to throw a UP passenger special with perfect power in the shot and you can't go wrong!

This would make a great calendar shot.
