The Aspen Stand
This shot got some really good feedback over on FredMiranda.com so I thought that I would go ahead and share it with you all here as well.
Photographed in Rocky Mountain National Park, this is the type of Fall Aspen shot I have wanted, but for some reason, whenever I have shot these kinds of shots in the past, they just never really have come out. Well, I think it did this time. It is almost to much of an iconic Colorado in Autumn photo, but I think one thing makes this one stand out from others. The lines. If you notice the black areas of the bark on the Aspen, that is actually where the Elk have eaten away at the bark. However, I like how it creates the line from left to right, going up higher as it goes to the right. I didn't even notice this until I was processing the shot, and I suppose you can blame that on negative space.
I suppose you can say that I am happy with the shot, I finally got the Autumn image I have always wanted. For those of you who don't know how beautiful the Colorado Aspen's are in Autumn, just ask Judy, she will be glad to tell ya!
Let me know what ya think! Print up shortly!
