Cascade Springs is a large artesian spring north of the Mt. Timpanogos Wilderness Area and along the Alpine Loop Scenic Backway near Salt Lake City, Utah.
Everything came together in this image. Color was spotty this year I was told by many, but Cascade Springs was beautiful.
This image is at sunrise where a short walk down a dirt road I took an image of a box elder tree and all its glorious seed pods with beautiful light striking the mountains.
As normally the case for me, this is a focus stacked image of the tree and the background.
1/4 second, ISO 100, F13 and a polarizer.
