Nature

We arrived home last night- so much to do! Laundry, groceries, miscellaneous to-do’s that can only be done from home- and catching up on my photography editing, posting, backing-up, blog visiting, and my still life classes.  I am missing my little Yellowstone munchkins terribly; our 16 hour drive home only reinforced how far apart we are!

I’m posting some photos of new, green aspen leaves I shot on a drive the first week we were there. The snow had finally stopped and Spring arrived at the same time we did! I love the aspens in Fall, and this was the first time I had photographed their leaves in Spring.  These were shot somewhere on Dunraven Pass.

The above photo is textured with two layers of Kim Klassen’s sybil, using color burn blend mode.  The second photo is of the same branch, but I crouched down to get a blown out sky in the background- no textures.

  8. Aspen are so lovely, aren’t they? Welcome home, though! And yes, the endless picky to-do list when we return from a trip. So glad you enjoyed it, though!
