Poplars at Secord – Fall 2014

Poplars at Secord Conservation Area

This is one of my all time favourite tree abstractions. It was a mid fall day and the light was soft but bright. It was a time of transition. Many of the leaves had fallen and the underbrush was thinning. In the background, you can make out the yellow leaves of other poplars as well as the bright greens of balsams. The saplings among the poplars seem to be dancing with motion. It reminds my of some fairy tale scene and gives the impression of a painting, rather than a photo.
