Today’s photographer, Maureen, has written a short piece accompanying the photograph, which I hope is alright to share here. She writes:
Aspens are my all-time favorite trees. I love the way each individual tree, although connected by underground roots and genetically related, like a close family, to all the other trees in its vicinity–each tree takes on its own personality and character as it matures. These have the twisted, dancing shapes that come from years of bending under heavy winter snows. The stark white bark stands in contrast to the darker forested background. A beautiful sight on any winter day, but especially on days like today, when the sun seems like it’s purposely spotlighting this grove. Ah, what a great place to hang out, even when the temperature is only 10F!
