I had been looking for a good spot to capture a classic 'look up' picture.
That morning, I was travelling along the Kebler Pass in Colorado and had stopped to take a hike into the forest. When I got back closer to where I had parked, I noticed a tall grove of aspen trees that looked promising.
People say you are supposed to lay on the ground for this type of photograph, but I wanted to ensure everything was as sharp as possible. So, I mounted my camera on my tripod. There was no center pole on my tripod, so I extended the legs and lowered the camera as close to the ground as possible.
My camera screen flips out, but not completely. So, I still had to get pretty low to the ground to frame the composition and ensure I was capturing a good sunburst.
