Backlit Field of Mule's Ear, Gunnison National Forest, Colorado, United States

The trip continues! We are in a bit of a lull weather-wise right now, with bright blue skies and cold temperatures ... 29F last night. In hopes of some more monsoon weather tonight, we have been photographing Aspen and numerous blooming flowers near the town of Crested Butte. This image was photographed this morning in some intense backlit conditions. I really liked the contrast between the bright light and blue shadows.
