The clouds and blue sky gave the light on the mountains (except of course the few peaks with direct sun). That gave the unusual light. The direction of light for the trees was the soft backlight from the orange clouds. This was the last week of September, 2007 after a gentle snow storm deposited snow on the mountains without blowing the leaves off the trees. The mountain near the left edge of the frame is Mt Sneffels. This is a 15-frame split density High Dynamic Range (HDR) mosaic.
