Autumn Flame

We spent a beautiful morning at the Red Springs meadow, near Red Rock Canyon. The autumn colors are in full display. The vibrant yellows and reds were quite a sight to see. I saw this leaf, backlit by the sun, and instantly thought of a flame. This photo was in my head before I pressed the shutter. My lovely assistant/girlfriend Beatriz kindly stuck her hands out to cover the lens from the sun's glare. I love this shot.

This photo will be available in print by this evening! Check the "Prints" section.
