[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this photo on my hike in the Eagle Creek area of the Columbia River Gorge. This is a different angle shot than the one on TL, and more close-up, I wanted to share this sweet little flower here too. It was very delicate and hard to photograph, I took many photos to finally get one that was clear.

I love pictures from meadows and this one is no exception. Green, blue, with many fresh plants, good composition and quality. Hard too photograph but you did it very well. Thanks for sharing Lori!
