We were at Juneau's Glacier Gardens, a man made gardens in the Tongass National Rain Forest when I noticed that a beam of sunlight hit his small tree with the red leaves. I quickly composed the image and took this image. I also grabbed my iPhone 8+ and took a photo with the cell phone. After walking away I decided to turn around and get one more photo. You guessed it the light was gone, the tree was now in shadows. Time is a fleeting thing and so is light to a photographer. If you see it, photograph it, don't wait because the light is constantly changing. You can take that for what it's worth and $3 and go have a Starbucks coffee.
I believe this is a small maple tree.
