This one is great

It's a nice departure on the normal "looking straight up through the aspens" shot. I like how the trunk leads the eye upward. Very nice!

Re: Jeeez!

Thanks! I highly recommend a visit to the Medicine Bow National Forest west of Encampment, WY. Take Forest Road 800, nicknamed "Aspen Alley" in September and you'll have a wonderful time photographing the aspen there :)

So Nice

Hi Carol!! It's Anita from Tahoe.
This is so amazing..I love the contrast of the deep blue with the golden yellow of the aspens. It is so beautiful...should be on a magazine cover!:)

Amazing!

Perfect in every way. The layering, color, and contrast are all beautiful. This is one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen!

Re: Amazing!

Thanks Mark! It's my favorite aspen photo to date.

Unfortunately I recently found out from a Forest Service employee that the aspen in this grove are declining. She's one of many people studying what they're calling, "Sudden Aspen Decline." She sent me a photo taken in July 2007 that shows these trees have very little leaves left on them :(

Re: Amazing!

That's very sad. These aspen are beautiful, and I don't like the environment to die. Do you know what is causing this?

Re: Amazing!

They're not sure but they suspect one or more of these things - drought, root disease or fungus, too many deer browsing, lack of fire, etc.

blue yellow

Those blue and yellow colors looks amazing together! Your a really great photographer! Birches must be my favorite trees now by looking at this!
