Mountain Wildflowers

I have never considered myself a flower photographer.

Indeed I have always been disappointed in my efforts to produce floral photos that I wanted o take a second look at.

This has been a unique year for moisture on the mountain. As a result, the wild flower bloom has been exceptional.

I decided to take advantage of the situation and give it one more try. This time, I committed to be patient and spend the time that was needed to create some images. (I usually get antsy and go try to find some kind of wildlife.)

Cedar Breaks National Monument offers a great selection of flowers and is close to my home. The month of July and Early August is prime time for flowers there.

This year is truly exceptional. If you haven't been there yet be sure you get out and go.

I satisfied myself on this trip. I proved to myself that with patience and persistence, you can produce images that are worth taking a second and even a third look at.
