Captured at Fairmont Cemetery in Denver, Colorado at the height of Autumn, this place is spectacular to photograph during fall and is Colorado’s largest arboretum containing 100s of different trees. In Fall it comes alive with a glow that is rarely seen. Containing some amazing architecture, some very big names lay at rest here and read like a who’s who of who founded my great state and they went through no expense at showing it off. For this shot I really wanted to bring the viewer into the scene and have them feel as though they were standing here under the glowing canopy of fall color. The exposure was quite difficult to balance the light and I had to shoot it using my cameras ability to photograph HDR in body along with a GradND and a CPL. I can’t wait to get back here once again this coming Autumn.
