Through The Pines - Idyllwild, CA

Camping high up in the mountains near Idyllwild, CA in the San Jacinto Mountains. I scoped the spot out earlier in the day, and anxiously returned & hung out to soak in and capture the sunset. Surrounded by towering pine trees, which are a signature feature of this area. Idyllwild is a magical place, and the sunsets are truly sublime, looking westward over 100 miles towards the California coast.

Being in the moment, the idea spontaneously sparked to find a spot where I could frame the sun inside of the branches in exactly this way. Running around with camera in hand, I was filled with happiness while capturing this, as I felt it would serve justice to the majesty of this sublime setting, and sunset.
