Aspen trees always draw me, especially in autumn. I like the soft, fragile, golden leaves against the white and black patterns on the strong, vertical tree trunks. We don’t have a lot of aspen groves here and the closest are in Central Oregon. On a warm fall day in October, a friend and I drove over in hope of hitting the color at the right time. Our timing was perfect! Unfortunately, by the time we arrived I was not feeling well and didn’t really want to take photos. However, I made the effort to get out and take some shots with my point and shoot camera, but didn’t have any great expectations. As it turned out, I ended up with this photo, which is one of my favorites and is framed and hanging on my wall. Although it is not a photo that screams fall with vibrant colors. The tree trunks with yellow dried grasses at their feet and red bushes peeking out from behind transmit the message of autumn in a subtle way.
