Daily Deviation

Given 2010-03-26
Aspen Alley 2 by *Nestor2k I was fairly shocked to see that this image only had a mere 5 favs when I scheduled it to be featured as a DD. 5. FIVE! It is shots like this by deviants like this, I love finding and discovering here on DA, completely unseen and just waiting to be discovered. This image is just stunning, I love how it leads the viewers eyes, you can just about hear the rustle of the Aspen leaves among the wind. An excellent shot! ( Featured by kkart )

For starters, I would like to mention that yellow is usually not my favorite color, but in this photo, it looks amazingly gorgeous.

One thing I like about this is how the yellow and white go together, they make me feel happy. :) One thing you could work on is the camera angle. It seems that if you had directed the camera directly down the pathway, and the aspen would be lining the sides of the image. I believe you completely deserve the daily deviation. :)

Overall, it is an amazing photo and you are comepletely worthy of five stars! :) Amazing job!

I've recently moved about 2 hours from there.  You wouldn't happen to remember where this exact spot is would you?

For the most part.. If you go to Baggs, WY, head East on Highway 70. About 33 miles down that road, you will see a sign on the right of the road that points left to Rawlins. The road is called Sage Creek Road. After you turn onto that road, is is only a couple hundred yards in. It will be fairly obvious when you see it. Hope that helps!

My favorite is Aspen Alley 2. Beautiful and alluring! I thought it was a painting. I love the yellow with the white bark of the trees. Very enchanting!

I personally think a good name for this would be "The Road Less Traveled By" simply because the picture makes me think of that Robert Frost poem, about the roads divided in yellow wood, but the current title is brilliant.

Lovely colours. :)

Did you try very many different shots along this route? I noticed you have another in your gallery, but I was thinking that there might be a way to limit the distraction of the foreground roadway (the bottom 1/4 or so of this piece). I feel it takes away some of the beauty of the photo.

i particularly like how the horizontal shadows of the trees and the trees themselves almost create a thread in the picture

Brilliant! At first I thought this was a painting, and I was amazed to discover that actually it is a photograph.

Very well done! :clap:
