[ A view from the ground, looking up through tall Ponderosa pines. The sun barely peeps through a cluster of branches, and many of the needles are brightly lit. ]

They shimmered as the sun shone on the needles & the wind moved everything around; I tried to catch it on video, but it just didn’t come out right.
