Colorado Pics of Boulder Creek in the Fall
Not too far into the Rocky Mountains, driving up on Canyon Road from Boulder, you see this landscape of fall reflections and colors. Boulder Creek flows down Boulder Canyon, through Boulder and then joins with St. Vrain Creek. From there it eventually flows into the Mississippi River and into the Gulf of Mexico. Boulder Creek is a popular place for fly fishing, wading and tubing.
During the Boulder floods of 2013, the rainfall during five days was 20-29 inches in Boulder, depending on the specific area. Boulder Creek overflowed and flooded much of the city of Boulder.
Photo Tip - Adjusting Polarizer
This image represents a good example of using a polarizer to accomplish two things. First, it removed much of the reflection on the water so the rocks at the bottom of the creek could be seen. Second, note that it did not completely remove the reflection of the autumn leaves. This was accomplished by adjusting the circular polarizer to a position that provided this compromise.
