Beautiful trees, Karen…and it’s so nice to walk among them.

I like it-this shot reminded me of something I’ve been meaning to do.

What would that be, Allen…?

Lovely! At one with the Quakies. I can almost hear their whispery murmurs.

And you know them well, Gunta. 🙂
Beautiful. I often find forests to be a bit eerie and menacing but not this one…..I understand Colorado (it is Colorado, isn’t it) to be so beautiful…I wish I was there to see this…and perhaps even walk amongst the trees

Hello, SP – I agree that the darker, thicker forests can be a bit menacing…so full of the unknown. These stands of aspen, even when they’re in larger forest settings, allow so much light through their branches and leaves that it’s usually a very bright place…. I know there are quite a bit of aspen in Colorado, but these are down the road from me a bit here in Utah. I’m pretty sure, too, that you would enjoy hiking through the trees. 🙂

Lovely, I feel like I’m standing in the forest.

I’m glad you could go there, Joi…it’s a wonderful place. 🙂

Oh that morning light! So beautiful through the trees!

Very much so, Susan…..

Great picture Scott, it’s another one that would do justice to blowing up and framing!

That’s a high compliment, Finn…thank you very much. 🙂
Great picture! It’s like I am standing there and seeing through the trees with you
August 17, 2013 at 6:34 pm
Thank you, Chris….how nice that you could be there, too!

That’s a beautiful stand of aspens! I would love to visit it!

Yes, it is, Terry…and just down the road a bit from you!

This is a gorgeous view.

It’s a beautiful stretch of the trail, Shimon…so inviting…..

that’s me, just off frame right, taking a picture of you taking this picture…it will be captioned in the book this way: the author/photographer in his element

Spot-on, Liana…I’m glad you were there with me to capture the moment. 🙂

A lovely photograph Scott!

Yes, it is, Nate. 🙂
I don’t believe I ever saw an aspen. They are beautiful, aren’t they! Christmas card trees… 😉

They certainly are beautiful, George…and would make a pretty Christmas card, too.
