This impressionistic photograph of Aspen Trees and Cutleaf Coneflowers was captured along Schultz Creek Trail in Flagstaff. I love moving my camera during exposure! Because I’ve been doing it for so long, I can almost predict every time what a photo will look like using certain movements. I’m often asked exactly how to do it but it really boils down to practice. That goes for any photographic style you love; macro, landscapes, etc. Practice, practice, practice like a musician with his instrument!

Several trails off Snowbowl Road intersect with the Arizona Trail. Today my friend Judi and I hiked a portion that starts close to Aspen Corner and goes past Apsen Nature Loop. This particular trail goes all the way to Bismark Lake. At about the 2 mile mark, is the most spectacular stand of Aspens and the forest is thick with ferns. I could have stayed for hours just photographing but that’s not Judi’s thing and I knew I’d be coming back in mid August. Can’t wait!
I would venture to guess that Last Dollar Road is the most photographed road in Colorado! It’s absolutely breathtaking in the fall but also excellent in Summer because of Wildflowers. I couldn’t find the origin of the name but I seem to remember it had something to do with a miner. Back in the 1800s, Last Dollar Road was a trail used by Basque sheep herders. You can still see evidence of their carvings in the aspen trees.
