An incredible display of man and nature. The exhaust plume of a SpaceX rocket is lit by the low sun at twilight. The plume takes on the shape of a flower with the trail almost looking like a broken stem as it shoots out from behind the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains. I couldn't have asked for a better scene as it shot up over a brilliant display of colorful fall aspens. One of the most incredible things I've been able to witness and capture on a camera. This shot is comprised of two exposures; one for the sky and one for the foreground without moving the camera.
