Once upon a time I took a photography workshop with David Muench, who was quite upset (in his own way) with me at one point because I was using a polarizer which would remove the "spectral highlights" from the image. Truth, I had no idea what he was talking about. But, I obeyed, because, hey, it's David Muench, who is an amazing photographer. And frankly twice my age but could easily lap me while hiking up a mountain with backpacks full of photography gear. That was a humbling weekend.
The highlights in this image remind me of him and those precious (and amazing) spectral highlights. Taken years later, near home... but a great reflection of the beauty out there in the world.
