Aspen Grove
It was fall in the Rocky Mountains and I was in search of the changing aspen. There had been a light snowfall the night before which made camping out a miserable and muddy experience. Now as I explored a nearby aspen grove the wet undergrowth soaked through my boots. The sky was gray and cold. I was beginning to think of giving up and leaving to find a hot cup of coffee somewhere. Suddenly the sun shot through a hole in the heavy clouds and a nearby clearing in the forest took on a luminescent glow. In that brief moment I took this image before the sun disappeared for the rest of the day behind the clouds.
