Aspen Abstraction #1

Aspen Abstarction1

The Aspens in the Sangre de Cristo mountains were in full glory this Fall with bright yellow leaves, some tinged with orange. Perfect colors for ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) photography.

This image is from a series I took using a Vari-ND filter to slow the shutter speed enough for the kind and quality of blur seen here. An hour before sunset I positioned myself and camera in the shadow of a deep pine and aspen forest on one side of the mountain. Facing me, through blue-grey aspen and brown pine trunks, was another mountain ridge awash in aspens that glowed with golden sunlight. What a glorious experience.

And that’s but half the fun. I then spent several sessions playing with processing (enhancing) these images.
