Tree Music

As I was trying to find reference photographs I came upon the Bend, OR file. It was nice to go back through and re-visit the trip from this past summer. In doing so I came upon several photos that may not be what I need today but inspired the thought for future work.

I have been doing a series of Snowy Owls this past year and want to move on to Great Horned Owls. I found a great picture of one sitting on a branch. Hoping to start working on that some time very soon. But, for now will continue the leaf theme for the upcoming mini show this weekend.

While looking at leaves, small birds, etc. I saw a information board photo I had taken. I do this to remind myelf of where I have been, what I have seen, the names of trees, birds, & places. The sign was titled: Tree Music, the area was filled with Aspen Trees. On the east coast this is the time of year we hear a lot of tree music. The leaves on the trees are at the end of their color, many are brown, making all kinds of musical sounds. Then there are the leaves already on the ground, making noise as the moving air blows them around and the whispering sounds of walking through the leaves. It is a very calming sound, makes me want to go for a walk.
