The evening fall color drive started poorly. After four straight nights of powerful evening sunlight, the clouds moved in an hour before sunset wiping out all direct light. But instead of heading home, I sought out some new subjects – and was amazed at what you can do without direct light.
While the white birch of the aspens could have benefited from some rays of light, the surrounding foliage was alive with color.
This stand of aspens was on a scenic backway between Midway, Utah and Guardsman Pass, high above Park City. The route is nice as it includes massive growth of oak (think red) at the mid elevations before you hit the aspens (think yellow) a bit higher.
This HDR captured the brilliant colors of the forest literally coming alive in the diffused evening light.
