Up Hill Trail

Up Hill Trail

What captured my interest most about this scene, besides that wonderful light, was the movement. The trail meandering upward, the foreground grasses leaning left, the small stand of trees leaning right, and then the clouds billowing left again. It's all those subtle indications of movement, always upward, that makes it seem that it will be well worth the climb to the summit of that hill in order to see what lies beyond.

I do get a really good sense of movement in this :)Like the grasses are moving like waves on the ground
