|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|I hiked up to the top of Tom McCall point at Rowena Crest hoping that the Balsamroot was blooming over the top. I was a bit early, probably another week or two, but I did find a few early blooms along the trail. This one was sitting right in the mid-day sun so it was very bright, my shadow covered it, but then I lost detail, so I tried a shot with the flash. I liked the result, the bloom seems to almost be floating in air, and the flash brought out more details.|
There are three different Balsamroots in the Columbia Gorge, Carey's, Northwest, and Arrowroot, but they can be difficult to distinguish from one another. For more information visit Paul Slichter's Web site
