I’ve always wanted to make a mountain wildflower picture, but getting to a picturesque spot deep in the mountains when the flowers are in bloom just hasn’t happened – yet.
Then one early June evening I found myself chasing sunset color in the clouds. After I chose the spot and made some pictures of the clouds, I looked around. It was definitely not the remote mountain meadow I have hoped to find, but In the opposite direction I found another scene worth shooting.
It was a pretty spot with flowers and grass and hay and a sunset happening in the distance.
Back home I went to work finishing the shot, which included identifying the prominent flower in the scene. If I have been successful In that effort, the yellow blooms are Arrowleaf Balsamroot.
Whether I am correct in my identification or not, most of all, I hope you enjoy the shot:
