Asters Square Crop

2011-0809: I like the square crop on this hand held image of asters in the Gore Range, Colorado, near Lower Cataract Lake trail. The vertical smears in the out-of-focus grass seems to stream into or out of the sharper flower. These purple asters are absolutely everywhere in Summit County this summer at this date. This image isn't sharp enough for a large print but would be a beautiful 10x10 on canvas.
