Curvy Aspen Forest

A photo I took this past fall of a beautiful grove of unique curved aspens. These trees have become popular among local photographers but were still difficult to find.

Maybe they were difficult to find because they were sneaking away! They have kind of a moving serpent look to them. Great photo.

Hey Nick - So.... I am a botanist. I have come back to this image so many times because I can't imagine what would cause this. It is for real right? It looks it but I'm scientist so i have to ask! :)

So I have heard different things about what caused this. I think the overall consensus was that it was caused from a landslide..

I was there last year, locals say it was an avalanche when the trees were small. Amazingly they grew out of it.

Very nice composition great shot

Bizarrely beautiful! You did a good job with what could so easily have been a curiosity shot, Nick. The composition is particularly strong, as Jabi points out. Love the way you catch those golden glowing leaves in the background as a foil for the trees.
