It is easy to underestimate just how difficult it can be to scout the right location, wait for the perfect light, create a compelling natural composition, and time a moment such as this with a small child. Apple trees are one of the many nostalgic symbols of my childhood and inspired this image. This is a single image capture that was shot on a particularly smoky Alberta evening. Wildfire smoke obscured the sunlight just enough to create an iridescent glow in the foliage. It is one of my favourite images, and it really means the world to have this image recognized on such a large scale.
