Thanks to everyone for the very kind comments. This image was captured in the early moments following sunrise. There were storm clouds moving in. Immediately after this image was taken the light died, so I was lucky to capture a good sky and light on the colorful aspen. #824816

All I can say is "unreal". This is a GREAT shot. It will be a finalist and beyond!

I'll be be moving to Summit County next summer and this only influences me more.
