Aspen like you have never seen Aspen before

Photo by Zach Maraziti

Aspen is a stunning town at the best of times but when seen through the unique lenses of local professional photographers it just goes next level.

The Aspen Photo Challenge invited 10 photographers to capture ‘their Aspen’ in three categories On The Trail, Around Town and Nature. Photos had to be taken between Monday, September 26 and Saturday, October 1, otherwise known as ‘peak leaf peeping season’ as the valley turns a thousand shades of gold.

We’ve curated a gallery of our favourite images from the Photo Challenge from Keala Asher, Seth Beckton, Dirk Braun, David Clifford, Jordan Curet, Ross Daniels, Jason Dewey, Jesse James Hoffman, Zach Maraziti and Jeremy Swanson.

You can see all the photos in the Aspen Chamber and Outside Magazine competition here.

The overall winner is Jeremy Swanson with runner up Jordan Curet.
