Birch trees

I photographed some birch trees in Denali
Park. Their crisp white bark was in such
contrast to the dark green and blue woods
behind them. And the black knots formed
such interesting patterns on the trunks.

I have seen the aspens in the West in the
fall; they have similar white trunks, and
their golden leaves are quite stunning.

I did several paintings of these trees,
and I am still not very satisfied. I will
probably do several more.
