“Light My Way”
“With the morning sun at my back, light blazed above me, lighting the trail ahead with golden warmth.” – Ed Lehming
I can’t seem to get enough of autumn, as snow now begins to fall and swirl around outside. I was very fortunate to have the ability to spend longer periods of time on the local trails just as fall was coming into its full splendour.
Even the photo above, made only last week, still holds some splashes of colour and brightness. On this particular day, I hit the trails early and was greeted with beautiful warm sunshine and light. The sun is now lower in the sky and creates some lovely effects if you get the timing and location right. This particular section of trial lined up in such a way that the sun beamed brightly down the length of the trail, making it look like the whole thing was made of gold. It did help that the trail was covered with freshly fallen oak leaves and pine needles, but it was quite mesmerizing and I simply could not resist the shot, hoping to capture some of its beauty.
It looks like a bright shaft f light is descending from above when contrasted to the darker pine and oak forest along the trailside.
