That Kodak Moment

I think all of us remember the Kodak marketing saying,"Kodak moment." It's meaning was never more definitive than this photograph.
My wife and I were on an Alaskan cruise and at the port of Juneau. One of the stops of our port tour was at Glacier Gardens, a man made garden habitat carved out of the Tongass National Forest, the second largest rainforest in the world. These Gardens are in the middle of large tall spruce trees so sunlight is limited.
I noticed this red leafed tree glowing in the filtered sunlight and quickly took this photo. I then took another photo with my iPhone 8+. After walking away I decided to go back to the spot and take another photo with my D750. You guessed it. The light was gone and it changed the entire look of this little tree. It truly was a Kodak moment lasting for perhaps a minute.
If you see a great composition, go and take the photo because it really is only a Kodak moment.
I normally don't put subjects in the middle of the frame, however, this middle framed subject, just fit.

"Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it and you will know the key to photography." George Eastman
