Storm Light of Autumn

By SteveSieren  
Ever watch the alpen glow fade and dissapear before it was going to get good, well that's happened but it came back through a hole in the clouds. No wonder it's a favorite time of year for so many photographers.

Normally I stay away from iconic scenes but I was scouting for a workshop and hanging out with NPNer's Eric Good and Chris Chamberlain so there was no doubt I'd end up at this heavily over shot lake more then once. I never complain about the crowd and just shoot around them since it's just the nature of iconic places. I knew the color there would be a lot better there then previous years because of all the extra water in the El Nino year so it would be worth working around the crowds. I spent about 2 weeks out there and can still head back in a week and shoot plenty more fall color in the lower parts of the canyons.

The workshop was a success with about 40 students coming and going to 5 instructors throught out the week. I'd heard there were 60 photographers along the creek outlet here at North Lake the day before. Hope to share a few other images from this morning but my choosing of what to process is very sporadic. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I created a pano of the same scene, don't let the rectangle box of your viewfinder (LCD) limit your creativity!
