SIERRA ASPENS

Morning light illuminates the leaves in this grove as if they were transparencies.  The dark background is a mountain that the sun has just edged above.  A  hidden channel of water flowed through the grove helping these aspens hold their leaves through a few frosts. The shadow of the aspen in the forground fell upon the lenses of the Realist stereo camera, preventing flare in this sunward shot. Fuji Velvia (ISO 50) was the perfect film for the ambers and oranges that the aspens offer.  The shot was taken at f9 and 1/50 hand held.
