Here's a recent image from the maple forest in Grand Portage, MN during the new moon. I love photographing the maple forest under nothing but the light of the stars. It's such a cool feeling to be standing under the combination of magnificent trees and glorious starlight. Every maple tree is so unique, yet some are more unique than others. I love searching for these special individual trees. I am always on the lookout for them as potential photographic subjects. I call these special trees "sentinels", as they stand apart from the rest. Watching over the others, if you will.
