Look Up

While driving through Northern California, Your Shot photographer Josh Heidebrecht experienced a moment of photographic serendipity after he and his friend pulled over to see what they could find in the grove. "While searching, a squirrel briefly chattered above me, causing me to look straight up," he remembers. "Luckily I had my wide-angle lens with me so I could capture this perspective of the partially burnt redwoods towering above us in an eerie silence."
