“Autumn Golden Hour” – Copeland Lake in the Wild Basin area of Rocky Mountain National Park reflects the sunlight of Golden Hour. It is rather hard to describe how good the light here was..it just lit up everything in a brilliant golden hue even making the Pine trees look like golden Aspen almost. The thing that really got me in this scene wasn’t just the light and reflection however but also the negative spaces created; look at the shadow areas of the trees and how it kind of creates it’s own silhouette of trees itself. How I love Fall in Colorado! Also, to really see this image how it intended to be seen, large and sharp, please see it on G+
