trees like to party by LukeAustin trees like to party by LukeAustin
Well Spring is finally here in the Canadian Rockies. The snow has finally melted and the mountain sides are now speckled with lime green patches where the aspens are beginning to recover after a long winter. I found myself in a little aspen grove yesterday doing a little light painting. I noticed this patch was nicely side lit and the white trunks of the aspens would contrast well with their vibrant new foliage. I blazed away until I was happy with the effect. I have a fair few variations in different formats that I will post on my blog over the next few weeks.

It's fair to say that there are a few shots like this around, but I have to say I love your version. The colours, flow and cropping really look fantastic.

Really nice, I just did something similar but not with the gorgeous contrasting trees like you did. Very well done.

I've been meaning to take photos like these for a while, I should really try it out. Also have been really interested in square photos lately haha.

Therefore, I like this photo!

Haha thanks. I try not to limit myself to one type of format be it square, standard or pano. Whatever I feel suits the scene is what I will go with.

The possibilities are endless out here. Gorgeous scenery everywhere you look and unlimited hikes to do. Let me know exactly where you are planning on going and I may be able to make a few suggestions

The idea is Banff for three days, Jasper for two days then one day at Glacier, unless you suggest something different?

Sounds like a good plan, should be a few wildflowers around if it is early August.

Do you typically tent it? if so where? hike in? etc? I may need to note you about all this OK?

Send me a note with any questions and I will do the best I can to offer some suggestions
