Aspen, Populus Tremuloides, Kaibab National Forest

I’ve also been fascinated with the patterns that blue fir’s make with their needles. I constantly try to seek out “rhythms” in these blue fir waves, so to speak, and here I found them to be a nice backdrop for this young aspen sapling.

Ponderosas

Ponderosas, Kaibab National Forest

I’m always fascinated with the reds of Ponderosa pines. As I was driving in the Kaibab national forest, I found several areas where the pines had the rich red bark which I’ve always wanted to make an image of.  I was on my way to Fire Point, when the light changed on me and made the colors come alive with a soft glow.  It happened right at this scene and I immediately pulled over and took a quick digisnap on my Canon G9 to check composition and rendering.  It looked good, so I pulled out the 4×5 to make this image.
