Aspen Colors


I was drawn to the yellow stand of aspen set against the more colorful stand in the background. Typically the aspen tree turns yellow, so it’s nice to find splashes of other colors to add to your composition. I tend to like aspens in soft light as you’ll see in upcoming posts, however, on this stand, the backlight was very soft and seemed to be making the foreground trees glow.

    Beautifully done, John ! And what you said about the backlight illuminating the foreground is spot on. Those trees look as though they were plugged in. 🙂 I’ll confess to sometimes not paying sufficient attention to the quality of the light and instead getting fully caught up in the subject only. Needless to say that when I do this I pay a price ! Slainte !

    Excellent JB. Are you using the Fuji exclusively?

      Scott, as I mentioned in the previous post, I brought my Nikon and 70-200 lens on this trip knowing I wanted to do multiple exposures in the field. On my Cape Cod trip I shot Fuji exclusively.

    I love these scenes…great work! Did you use the “credit card” with the aspens?

    Living vicariously thru your beautiful images. Love this. And want to add how much I enjoyed the multiple exposure shots too.

    Beautiful shot. I really like the soft back lighting on the Apens. Brings back memories from a trip my wife and I took out west a couple of years ago.
