Sheltering Aspens

After a very fulfilling morning of photography in early October in Dixie National Forest, I was wending my way back to the campsite to repack and prepare for the afternoon hike. The light wasn't good for photography anymore and I already half packed my camera.

Suddenly, the clouds faded the sun bringing such warm light into the scene in front of me.

I was rushing as much as I could to setup my camera as the moment was going away very fast. It was extremely hard to focus and expose the scene as the light was quite complicated, but somehow I managed. The exposure took half a second, after which the warm glow of the aspens had gone away and scene became too bright again to expose.

This shot made my entire day!
