Visited this location for the first time on Oct 1st and the leaves weren't peak and I arrived here at the wrong time of the day with lot of sunlight falling on the foliage and waterfalls. I knew that time I need to come back here in earlier hours to catch that soft light and glow on the leaves. So I drove another 3 hours detour to this location on Oct 5th to reach here right around sunrise and captured this magic. Sometimes to get the right photo and conditions need to go back again and again until you find the light you can work with.
This image is shot with 110mm so had to do focus stack and shoot 3 rows of panoramic images to bring this entire scene. The final panorama was close to 400 Megapixels and this one is slightly cropped for balance and composition.
This is Nellie creek falls in Eastern Slopes of San Juan Mountains in Colorado which is close to Lake City, CO.
Gear used: Fujifilm GFX50S and GF110mm f2
May the light be with you all.
