Aspen lines

I drove along the Grand Valley Road in search of raptors and was fortunate to come across a small group of fellow photographers who had spied a Northern hawk owl in a roadside stand of trees.  I will share a couple of photographs of that fine bird soon but wanted to first show the abstract images I made earlier in the day.  Before finding any wildlife, I was spending time looking for them among the trees and meadows along the road.  Early on, I found this stand of Aspens and I loved the vertical pattern and the stark contrast between dark and light within and between the tree trunks.

I loved the straight image and once I dialled that in the way I liked, I wanted to drag my shutter and play with the blurred images that I traced out.
