Golden Chaos

Sometimes a particular nature scene just captures your attention even though it may be difficult to describe why. This image certainly is in the category. Backlit aspen leaves impart a glow that is simply breathtaking. Initially, my creative intention was just to focus on the leaves and to capture their intense glow. But as I viewed various trees through my lens, one tree had shed many of its leaves, revealing a mass of chaotic branches. I’m usually one who appreciates order, but again, for reasons unknown, the disorderly branches in combination with the backlit leaves really appealed to me.

Beautiful texture and light. lovely :wink:
