Inspired by… the white and leafless aspens reaching for the sky. The blue of the sky was a stark contrast to the white of the tree bark.

While hiking in the mountains near Santa Fe, I was struck by the crisp blue sky and the thicket of aspen trees. The trees were bare of leaves and seemed to be competing to see which could be the tallest tree.
