Larch on Fire The Enchantments, Alpine Lakes Wilderness, Washington, USA
First light strikes alpine larch in The Enchantments. The Enchantments in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness is truly the jewel of Cascades. The possibilities for photography are endless. On this particular morning I set up my 4x5 well in advance and waited for the first light to overcome the distant peaks. The warm morning light combined with the yellow autumn needles made the larch look as if they were on fire.
