Description A grove of aspen trees is illuminated in the colors of autumn in Steamboat Springs, Colorado.From Wikipedia Online Encyclopedia:The aspens are all native to cold regions with cool summers, in the north of the Northern Hemisphere, extending south at high-altitude areas such as mountains or high plains. They are all medium-sized deciduous trees reaching 1530 m (4998 ft) tall. In North America, it is referred to as Quaking Aspen or Trembling Aspen because the leaves 'quake' or tremble in the wind. This is due to their flattened petioles which reduces aerodynamic drag on the trunk and branches.
Don Schwartz, Portland, Oregon Member Since September 2012 Artist Statement Photography is for me a dance with nature. It is the immersion in a landscape; the sharing of a habitat with nature’s creatures. It is the sense of being lost in the moment, where the passing of time goes unnoticed. It is the serendipity of capturing a moment in time that becomes a timeless moment. The quiet places, the places of simple beauty, draw me in – from the delicate splendor of dew dancing on an iris petal to the magnificent breadth of a gray whale slicing through the water. With my camera, I am a blessed witness in a field of splendor.
