Aspens in Rock Creek Canyon, Road to South Lake
The mid to late afternoon is a great time to photograph these aspens on the way to South Lake. The sun is streaming over the top of the mountain across the road and into the Aspens. About 10 minutes after this the sun went behind the mountain and the light in this Aspen grove shut down until the next day. WIth lots of canyons and valleys in Rock Creek Canyon you have to pay attention to the sun trajectory or your images will not show the brilliant yellow of the aspens. A high f/stop provies for spires around the sun.
