Forests: Cottonwood Explosion

The following gallery represents a collection of Cottonwood Tree images from various areas of Colorado. My favorite time of year to photograph Cottonwood Trees is November when early morning warm lighting lights up the golden leaves. After the Aspen trees drop their final leaves to the forest floor anticipating winters arrival, the mighty Cottonwood trees are just getting going. Most of these image were photographed in the New Castle and Rifle areas of Colorado.
