Autumn's Brilliance

Autumn's BrillianceDriving to The Mountain Institute on Spruce Knob I was captured by this view.  It takes a very special scene to get me to stop and work it photographically, but this was the most intense autumn scene I have ever witnessed.  The crystal clear transparency was giving way to a blazing late evening sun which was providing the unbelievable back lighting on the leaves and surrounding forest.  I only hope I have depicted the scene half as well as the scene looked in reality.  It was the most intense display of light and color I have ever come across.  The print is titled "Autumn's Brilliance" and is the October Print of the Month.  I hope you enjoy the image and the print.  Please be sure to click on the image and then click on the thumbnail for a larger presentation in a portfolio black screen viewing mode for greatest viewing effect.
