Reflections Of Gold by kkart Reflections Of Gold by kkart
Golden Aspen trees reflect in a lake in rural Gilpin County, Colorado at the peak of Autumn. This was a really tough shot, perhaps one of the most challenging shots I have ever taken. The lighting was very tricky, changing by the second as was the reflection. With every little breeze, the reflection would completely disappear. The lighting would become very harsh and then the scene would go dark as clouds would roll over head. Patience pays off however and I think a lot seem to forget that and instead simply throw their arms up in the air and move on to a different location. Some things just take time and often we are rewarded greatly.
---John.

The reflections are fine, but the original golden leaves in the foreground, too. The autumnal leaves contrast with the green and black forest in the background.
