I’ve always been drawn to Aspen & Birch trees as they stir my imagination. Feelings and emotions seem to awaken when walking among them. While trees, in general, have been inherent in many cultures…these two species are truly symbolic and among natures purest forms of beauty. They are graceful, bright and beautiful…stable and resolute. These qualities resemble a simple, yet powerful, metaphor for life today.
Aspens and Birches can be contemplated as a juxtaposition, offering a sense of energy while restoring a sense of calmness at the same time. To me, Aspens and Birches represent a symbol of renewal and transformation. It’s fortuitous that Aspens & Birches were among my first series of photographs when I reentered the workforce. Perhaps it was just a coincidence….or perhaps not a coincidence at all. Enjoy a walk in the woods and revel in the simple beauty these magnificent trees have to offer.
