The frequency I am currently posting updates at almost forces me to rename this into “Photo of the Month” rather than “Photo of the Day” – that is the bad thing about having a day job that is at least as demanding as going out into the field and getting the shot.
Now it is about time to post another new shot – one that I took almost a year ago and that strongly evokes some strong fall feelings in me. Taken near Aspen, Colorado, this shot is one of my favorite tree shots. The way the Aspens create a strong contrast to the backlit leaves and the sheer number of Aspens make for a great composition. I remember driving around Aspen up to Independence Pass to look for some great fall color shots. Suddenly I came across this group of Aspens, and the light seemed just perfect. I stopped, put up my tripod, and captured a shot. Sometimes nature presents you with great opportunities on the side, and all you have to do is watch out for them. I love it.
