I like the look of the dense aspens, it's something very graphic.
Well seen.

It's interesting to note that a grove of aspens is in reality a single organism, all interconnected underground. Here is more: https://www.nationalforests.org/blog/tree-profile-aspen-so-much-more-than-a-tree

Thanks! Yes, this particular grove is one of the largest known single organisms on Earth!
I did a quick google for it and found a 2013 article from right here on LL.

Thanks, me too! I was at the end of a mountain hike after work last night and the arch is what compelled me to get out my camera and tripod just one more time.

Different places, similar compositions. The silver birch was taken in Iceland, near Myvatn, and the other (unidentified) tree down the street from my house in North Carolina.

Both very nice.

What time of year were you near Myvatn (which means "Midge Lake")?

When I was there in June, many years ago, the midges near the lake made it impossible to stay outside the car for more than a few seconds. But it is a beautiful place.

We were there in June also--last week IIRC. We had heard about the midges but were lucky in that the day we were there was very windy and we were spared the little buggers. Although I came very close to getting my dumb ass blown off a cliff!

I found this tree more interesting than beautiful, at least as I photographed it. A reminder of who we share these forests with.

Cherry tree trunks on the grounds of the Dalecarlia Reservoir at the border between Washington, D.C., and Bethesda, Maryland.

This is a silver birch photographed near Myvatn in iceland. I'd love to hear opinions as to color vs. B&W. Thanks
