The colors out in the natural world have seemed especially beautiful to me recently. This morning, Shyla and I made it out into the hills before the sun's first rays had touched our forest. We gazed at the mountains, already alight with the soft reddish color of the rising sun - alpenglow.
The same rays made Shyla glow in red.
Then, I tried backlighting Shyla with the sun. The sun was directly behind her head. Look at the golden fringe the sun gave her! It's a silhouette in gold.
Last, but not least, I've been going through more star photos from our trip to Utah. I spent more time with my camera pointed away from the North Star than ever before. It made some cool patterns. In this case, the butte was directly south of our campsite so the stars arced across the sky over more than two hours.
