I've seen these types of overhead views of aspen for years, and enjoyed the colorful perspective. Finding compositions that are balanced and colorful can be a challenge, as I found out by endless walks through tree groves that I thought had potential. In addition to colorful branches, in this case a maple, I found some patches of blue sky combined with clouds made for the most pleasing compositions. The partial cloud cover allowed some backlit leaves and broke up the sky a bit. In addition, I found the colorful maple surrounded by the uniform red pines a little different take on the usual mass of colorful aspen.
