[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I think I have the identification right on this, but as always, I could be wrong. Malia and I hiked up on Mount Hood today, Oregons tallest mountain. To take this photo I had to lay on the ground, I certainly get some strange looks from people when I do this, especially my daughter, although I think she's getting used to it by now!

Hi Lori!

Hi Lori,
I love the angle and POV you have taken on this one. Nice color and detail. Great notes too.

Hi Lori. Pretty colours but your use of depth of field has let you down. Either include the mountain by changing your angle and use more depth of field, or leave it out. As it is now it is just a distraction. Some of the flowers are in focus and some not. Again either crop those that are blurred or allow some depth of field so tht they can be included. Kind regards, Rob
