アスペンのある景色 – Aspen and Images


アスペンが大好き。アスペンのある景色はどれもおとぎの国の世界のように見えてくる。 – I love Aspen trees.  Any images including Aspen look like Fairyland to me.

コロラド高原の中で最も高度の高いCedar Breaks 国定公園は、夏でも寒い。前回来たのは6月23日。まだ雪があり、トレイルは通行止だった。その時のアスペンは、これ。 – Cedar Breaks National Monument, which is the highest park on the Colorado Plateau, is cold even during Summer.  We visited here on June 23rd of this year, and still couldn’t walk trails due to the snow.  Here is a shot I took of Aspen then.

そして、これが一昨日の同じ場所。 – And this is a shot from two days ago at the same location.

アスペンは紅葉のように綺麗な赤い葉の時期がない。黄色がピークでその後は枯葉色のオレンジ色になって散っていく。Cedar Breaks のアスペンの夏は短い。 – Aspen aren’t like maple trees whose leaves turn into a gorgeous red.  Instead, Aspen’s autumn peak is yellow.  The leaves whither and turn into orangeish, then fall off.  The summer for Aspen at Cedar Breaks is short.

散り終わったアスペンも素敵。冬の前の雪景色のよう。 – I love Aspen even after it has lost all its leaves.  It’s like a snow wonderland before the actual snow of winter.

冬景色のよう。Just like a Winter scene.

散りゆく時はまるで春の桜のよう。風に乗って葉が舞い踊る。 – When the leaves fall, it’s just like cherry blossom petals falling.  The leaves swirl, and dance away with the wind.

サラサラと風になびく音を聞きながら目を閉じると、懐かしいイメージが浮かんでくる。アスペンのある景色はどれも私の心を暖かくしてくれる。 – When I close my eyes while listening to the gentle fluttering sound of Aspen leaves, old familiar memories come back to me.  Images including Aspen trees always make my heart very warm.
