New Growth-Budding Aspen Trees in Spring
Springtime brings new growth to stark white aspen trunks along Castle Creek Road outside of Basalt, Colorado.
I took this picture back in the spring of 2009 and just processed it a while back. My wife really liked it so I made a 16" x 24" print of it and just finished framing and hanging it. It looks pretty stunning in a dark mahogany frame.
Early in June that year the aspens were just starting to get some of there greenery. I posted an image a while back of a grove that was farther along and had much more color. These aspens had just a hint of green and zooming in close created a nice somewhat abstract image. The stark white trunks really shine through in the print.
