Glowing Alder Forest
Cascade Mountains, Washington

This particular autumn was a very busy one for us. We did a lot of exploring in the previous few weeks, but now the show was over. I still decided to take a drive down the Mountain Loop Highway in search of autumn remnants. I discovered this grove of alders a few years prior and decided to stop and take a walk among them. The day had a good bit of rain but the clouds began to break up in the late afternoon, just as I arrived here. A bit of color remained and all the trees were saturated with the moisture. As I was setting up for this image, a soft glow from the sun began to illuminate the scene...and all was perfect.
