Aspen Abstract

Aspen Abstract

Sometimes I find interesting compositions when I least expect it. Coming home over the Alpine Loop, most of the beautiful fall leaves had already disappeared and the aspens were barren and boring. But I rounded a bend and spotted this scene just as the late afternoon sun was filtering through this grove, creating beautiful highlights and low lights. The pop of color from the small aspen tree still retaining its leaves added some contrast to the scene. (I call this an abstract, because I did some post editing to give it a unique look.)

God is the best artist of all, all we have to do is see it and you did

Beautiful textures and light... We were out yesterday taking advantage of some sunlight---- way too many dark and damp days here this October.

The trunks of the barren trees look like slices of silver -- just beautiful.

Sigh...not a lot of aspen in Florida

It is an interesting shot. The light on the trunks is nice. I think it would look good without the yellow Aspen too. Just the pattern of vertical trunks is striking too.
