This is one of those photographs that had to sit for awhile before I could see what was in it. It was taken in the lower portion of a large aspen grove that spreads up the hillside above North Lake in the Bishop Creek drainage. I was there earlier this fall and, after shooting the obvious gaudy colors around the lake, I decided to walk into this grove where the light was very interesting because of the yellow leaf canopy and the changing light as clouds moved overhead.

When I got home I liked the photo but couldn’t quite figure out how to handle it because there was so much yellow in it – the leaves overhead, the glow on the trees, the foliage on the ground. It wasn’t until earlier this week that it finally made sense to me to crop it a bit and try this monochrome version.
