We, as mountain bikers, are lucky to be able to roam all over the mountains of the world, and through some amazing forests.
For all the times that I have ridden through maze-like groves of aspen, I am always left amazed at the thrill and also the sight of what it is like to be within them. The stark beauty of the white bark, the symmetry of the vertical trunks, and the depth of what one can see.
This led to the inspiration to find a section of trail that would let me shoot long lens into the depths to create an image like this. i have shot cornering through aspen before with success, but nothing as stealthily striking as this one of matt Hunter weaving his way through the airspace of an aspen grove in Kamloops, BC.
