At the end of a long day of photographing, Ruth and I were headed down mountainside on a dirt road when we came across this orange grove of aspen trees. That year I saw more orange, and even red, aspen leaves than I even knew existed. The sun was setting in a somewhat hazy sky and in this photograph, the angle of the sun is the same as the angle of the opening in the forest that runs from near the top left corner to near the bottom right corner. The orange colors of the trees was brought out by the warmth of the late afternoon sun.
The image is titled Warm Aspen Glade not only because of the warm colors but primarily because of the warm feeling I get from the final exhibition prints. To me, I get the feeling of the warm glow of being in the aspen forests in the fall. The opening in the trees invites me to go for a quiet, introspective walk through the woods.
