Some of the most amazing groves of aspens are tucked away deep in the Dixie National Forest of Utah. The Dixie is breathtaking and diverse, offering everything from amazing site seeing to breathtaking hiking. Walking around a small portion of the Dixie a single grouping of aspens seemed to draw our attention, the trees appeared as if they were protecting something. After waiting for the light to fall and finding our composition we begun to capture the scene we are calling “The Guardians“. The lush green ferns appear to create a soft walkway as the aspens line up in formation holding their ground. “The Guardians” is truly one of our most striking and detailed photographs of aspens we have ever captured. We hope you enjoy this image as much as we enjoyed capturing it.
