Image No. 64 thru No. 71 – The Aspen Obsession Continues
Although I didn’t include many other images of aspens after the “Obsession” post, images of these trees were always in the forefront of my thoughts almost the entire time I spent in Colorado. Whether it was blurred or sharp, leaves, trunks, mountainsides, valleys, backlit, side-lit, front lit, only the tips lit, at dusk or midday, sunny or cloudy, I was always on the lookout for an image of aspens. When I left Colorado, I thought I was done, but I found an abundance in Dixie National Forest in Utah and was also surprised to find them as the trip neared its end, on the north rim of the Grand Canyon!! I had a lot of fun doing the blurs, but also some of the sharply focused ones that looked like paintings by Jackson Pollock or Wolf Kahn. In any case, I added a few more here from the many, many that were taken. These are only some of the blurred images that show the range of styles that can be obtained by using some different techniques.
