The Enchantments in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness is one of my favourite locations to photograph . On my first autumn visit to the area I came across this fine backlit Larch with a wonderful little lake in deep shadow behind. By the time that I had set up my 4x5 camera the light had passed and I had missed the moment. I made a note of the time and location. The following year I made the trek up to this spot once again and sure enough at 1pm on a clear afternoon I managed to get the shot that I had tried to get the year before.
