The Other Path Through the Thicket.

My springtime thicket photographs are sometimes mistaken for fall colors, but mountain willow and alder bushes show amazing colors in April and May. In this case, a wet spring and late freeze kept the leaves from budding too early, and the colors of the new year's growth on each branch turned especially vibrant. The fine details of each branch are best seen in prints. Nederland, Colorado.
