    I love the sepia tone on this one. Different, and I think a beautiful complement to white of the white of the bark.

    Daniel, I’m not sure if you’ve seen the two pix I shot of some unusually colored aspens leaves this past fall. I’ve never seen orange aspen leaves before and wondered what might be causing the coloration. These photos are right out of my camera – I didn’t play with the color at all. And this grove is a familiar one – every other year the leaves were the usual yellow. This fall they were bright orange. Do you have any ideas? Here is a link to one of the photos:

    Maureen, did you have more sun than usual this past autumn?

    Hmmm, I thought of that, Daniel and I really can’t say. It seemed like an average year, to me. Have you heard of the orange coloration when the weather is unusually sunny?

    I was thinking of the same process that’s described here. If it isn’t that, then I’m at a loss.
