[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These wonderful purple flowers were found on a moss covered open area on Nick Eaton Ridge in the Columbia River Gorge. Although my sister and I have hiked almost every trail in the Columbia River Gorge, neither of us recognized these beauties. They covered this clearing and were just wonderful to see. The elevation was probably 3500-4000 feet, so not something you would find in lower areas.

A nice capture on these flowers. A good job in what looks like some very bright sunlight.

I love these, now see if I'd been brave enough to trapse all over that steep hillside I might have some in focus flowers too! ;-)
I love how everything behind these is out of focus, but not the things in front. The weathered wood behind definitely enhances the scene. I've looked at a billion wildflower photos today and the only ones that come close to this are a wild crocus...but still not sure about that...they also sort of look like a lily type flower too.

Just the image one needs to start one's dull Monday morning in cloudy Belgium! Very well done on all counts.

An excellent post Julie. This is what I like to see on TN. Wildflowers in their natural habitat...and no ID makes it twice the fun....
They bring to mind Babiana,but I don't think these are them....
I'll have a search too and get back to you.
