    Question Aspen Photography

    We live in beautiful Colorado, and just got done with quite a grand year for shooting Aspens . . . we were just curious, what other areas of the country/world have aspen trees, or are they limited to Colorado? I have quite the collection of aspen art and photographs, but I just wondered if this goes beyond this region?

    Thanks

    Well - California, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho all come to mind quickly.

    Thanks Eric . . .

    I see you have some Aspen experience - we have been throwing around the idea of putting together an "Aspen" inspired gallery . . . featuring art and photography of the Aspen tree . . . can't decide if it should be "JustAspens.com" or "OnlyAspens.com" at this time . . . haha

    Or perhaps, "AspensExclusively.com"?

    We get little stands of aspens here in southern Arizona, where the mountains go above 9000' msl. A 30-minute drive puts one back down among the saguaro cactus.

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way when you do criticize them you'll be
    a mile away and you'll have their shoes.

    Eastern WA, N. Dakota have aspens....they are actually a pretty prolific tree, and will grow in a wide variety of climates....Southern Canada is a great place to shoot aspens as well...

    Well, there are aspens in MA. but they are called poplars. Either Populus trembloides or grandedentata I can't remember which. But they are local and generally are a succesionist species in abandoned fields. They can form brilliant yellow stands in limited masses on occasion.

    There have only, ever, been two photographs of Aspins, and Ansel Adams took them both.
