I’ve seen this tree now for three years. Situated next to the campsite that two of my friends and I stay at when we go fly-fishing in September each year. It’s in the southwest corner of Alberta in the Crowsnest Pass and looks like it was likely distorted by heavy snow when it was a small sapling. Situated along a small open meadow near the base of a mountain it stands along with a few other beautiful trembling aspens, but this one stands all on it’s own when it comes to originality! From virtually every angle it oozes character and it twists and turns like a great ballet dancer. Searching out compositions that include trees can sometimes occupy hours of enjoyment for me some days – this one took about 3 minutes to accomplish! I made multiple horizontal images and stitched them together to create a very high resolution vertical image.
