I’ve been working on finishing up my photos from our Colorado adventure in June, and I’m just about there!
I didn’t have a lot of things that I had pre-visualized for our trip, but one of the things that I wanted to come back with was some nice photos of Aspen trees. I’d eventually love to go back in the fall, but June was a great time for some spring green. We get that here in April & May, but of course we don’t have Aspen. We do have Birch, but it’s just not the same.
I have a few more Aspen photos that I like a lot, but they are going to require a lot more work to see if they can be made presentable. It’s kind of a funny story in a Murphy’s Law sort of way. There was one grove of Aspen that I liked a lot, but there was a blue wire fence running through them, I think it was part of an elk enclosure. As I was shooting I assured myself that the blue fence would be rendered invisible by the motion. But wouldn’t you know it, the vertical movement of the camera tracked parallel to the fence, so the fence is perfectly rendered in the background. Crap! I’m going to have to spend some time in Photoshop to see if I can do an adequate job of erasing the fence. I’m quite rusty with my skills but I’ll see what I can do.
Kathy & I are off on our latest adventure next week. Photos and stories to follow!

Lovely shots, Tom. Too bad that Murphy followed you all the way to Colorado, but great job and keeping the fence sharp. It takes lots of skill! 🙂
Thanks, Paul. Murphy is everywhere, you just never know where he’ll crop up. Leave it to the guy who can’t keep a horizon straight to nail a fence pattern! 😉
Gorgeous Aspens and beautifully done. We have Birch trees but I agree, not the same. Have a great day.
After admiring these photos I’m sure that pesky fence doesn’t stand a chance against your Photoshop skills. Very nice work, Tom.
Thanks, Ken. I’m feeling a bit lazy in terms of Photoshop, but it might make for a great rainy day project!
