Wasatch Mountains, Utah, USA
Fall came early in Utah this year. As a result, I frequently found myself struggling to find new perspectives from which to capture new scenes, primarily due to time constraints. This week I found myself not too far from Mount Nebo, in the Wasatch Mountains. As the sun began dipping over the horizon, I saw the highlights of the sun glistening among the leaves in the treetops of some nearby aspens. "This is it, go back!" I yelled out to the driver and colleague -- actually my beautiful wife. She turned the vehicle around and parked. I scrambled down the hillside, setup my tripod, and captured this scene. A scene that called out to me, making a comparison of the already-dormant aspens on the left, and the living, vibrant aspens on the right! Amazing sight! And a special thanks to Josh for coming along, too!
