When something in nature catches your eye and you begin to search for the simple. The refined. The essence of an image… a telephoto is hard to beat.

Mountains. Haze. Layers. Backlighting. Vibrant color. A strand of trees on a hilltop which stands out more than the rest.

The light wasn’t strong enough the minute before to convey a strong image. Then, as the sun continued to rise, the light was too strong the next minute.

A gift of autumn gold… in March.
