Today's Flowers #64: Aspen Tree at Sierra Mountain

Unlike the Fall color of the East Coast, the color of autumn at the Sierra mountain mostly has only one color, yellow. Grace and I were traveling in the Sierra mountain last week with two photographic groups. One was for the Yosemite National Park and the other one was at Eastern Sierra around Mono Lake. For me, the yellow color is one of the most difficult color to capture in a digital camera. Over saturate it, it turns to brown. Underexpose it, it turns to brown too. That means any yellow leaves in the shade tend to have a brown tint.

Landscape photography is also a testing of image's resolution, it is hard to keep every leave sharp when we blow up the images to 100%. I took two pictures of this Aspen tree at the prime of its yellow color then merged the images together in the Photoshop. I think I got the color right this time. Click on it and you can almost see every single leave.

Friendship is the most beautiful relationship on earth. Share this wonderful relationship with the most beautiful object on earth the flowers. Flower is the symbol of joy, love, happiness, and passion. Every flower has its own image and importance and its own emotion symbol.
