At 32x72, this photo puts you in the moment, one I was too busy photographing to appreciate at the time. It wasn't until I looked at the image, full of detailed wildflowers under a pastel sky featuring two of my favorite celestial objects, that I realized what a striking event I'd witnessed.
The alpine summer is the shortest of seasons, always arriving all at once, leaving just as fast during August snow. I look forward to it each year and the opportunities it presents a photographer.
