[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Avalanche Lilies are everywhere in the subalpine right now, and is among the first of the higher elevation wildflowers after the snows of winter have melted away.
These flowers like growing in the open meadows where avalanches are common, hence the name for this beautiful flower.
A black cloth was placed behind my subject here, and was shot just before the sun set in order to give it that nice soft golden glow.

This is a most amusing shot, a flower saluting the sun.
Excellent use of the natural light, great POV. And I will disagree with my colleague, Ori: please don't crop the out-of-focus leaf because without that, the air of a salute would be gone. Do you think you could sharpen it a little in PP?
Best regards
