Trailside ColumbinesTrailside Columbines For this week's "Withdrawal Wednesday", I'm pulling from - and adding to - the Nature & Wildlife gallery.  The image above will be jettisoned in one week, so if you like it, act now, as it will soon be forever gone.  I love Columbines, which are Colorado's beautiful state flower, and I love all the color in this image, but its composition doesn't really do much for me anymore.  I took this early in my photog days, and I've learned much since then, so I could do much better than this now.  I just need to get out there and get some fresh Columbine pics!  I think the only reason I've held onto this one as long as I have is because that particular hike meant (still means) something special to me, so I didn't want to let it go.  It's also about the only semi-decent Columbine pic I have in my archives right now...  Like I said, I need to hit trails and get some fresh pics!  Until I do, though, I'll just have to live without a Columbine in my gallery for a while...

 

And now, to the replacements:

Twin TowersTwin Towers Out with the flowers, in with the trees!  Both of these pictures I took last Fall.  The above picture, which I call "Twin Towers", I took not far from the summit of Mt. Royal, which lies just outside Frisco, CO.  It was the very first mountain I ever summited, and it's still one of my favorite hikes.  This tree (yes, it's just one tree) really spoke to me, even in death exuding such power.  Add to that a dramatic sky backdrop as I looked up at it, and it just made for the perfect scene.  I love it in B&W...

 

And onto the next one, taken only about a week later...

Aspen tree, near Horsethief FallsAspen This image is a close-up of an aspen tree, along the trail that goes out to Horsethief Falls and Pancake Rocks, near the old train tunnel between the towns of Divide and Cripple Creek, CO.  I was zoomed in to 210mm and shot at f4, giving the image a nice, creamy, de-focused background with some nice color to it, thanks to it being Autumn.  It may not be a vast, grand scene, but I do like the composition, the color, and just the nice warm feel to it.  This would look really nice printed on aluminum or Fuji Pearl paper, as these colors would really pop on those mediums.

 

And of course, with Withdrawal Wednesday comes another deal!  This week the discount is 50% off (notice a trend? discounts are getting smaller, so act quickly if you want to buy a print and save a lot of money!), and is available for any print.  Just enter coupon code "WW-50-OFF" when you check out, and the 50% discount will be applied to your entire order (including shipping!).  It expires on 7/2, though, so don't dawdle!

 

Cheers,

Ryan
