Aspens In Death Canyon

It seems like most landscape photographers, from Ansel Adams to Henry Holdsworth, have their shots of aspen groves.  There is something about their uniformity, vulnerability, the fluttering leaves, the marks on the lower trunks that look like eyes, that hold photographers in thrall.  Most of these shots are in black and white, and in winter, to showcase the contrast between white and black.  And sometimes we see a grove of aspens in the summer, and it Is colorful, and we put the viewfinder to our eye.
