Beautiful flower.

The pistils leave delicate shadows. The shade allows the lavender flower to appear more purple. The lighting effects add such artistic flair to the scene. Frame this print and place it in a noticeable place for all to admire!

We love how you notice the shadows on the petals first, then you look down and see the shadow of the flower on the ground - such a pretty shot!

Thanks, y'all! I was lucky on this trip--heavy snowpack + cool spring meant wildflowers were still in their prime up in the high country.
