|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a view I took looking down towards a small valley near Stein's Pillar in the Ochocho National Forest near where my daughter lives in Prineville, Oregon. |
The flowers I believe are Balsamroot and the tree a pine. Their ecosystem is very different from where I live, we have mostly fir trees, they have mostly pine and juniper, with sage brush and grasslands. This area had many large pine trees with their reddish bark, and these balsamroot flowers sprouting all over when we were there.
I'm not sure what I liked about this photo, but in going through my older photos it jumped out at me. I struggle with how or even if to crop it because in this view the rule of thirds eluded me!

The green and yellow make it stand out nicely. With the exception that I can see the tree and flowers are high on a hill this could have just as easily been taken in my native Louisiana. And I could not tell you if Louisiana has any Balsamroots, but it does have many, many pine trees.
Thanks for sharing,
ps Workshops are always appreciated and I like yours. I wish I could have had someone do my overexposed area for me. That took me several tries and a long time to get something I liked this morning.

Hi Lori, I like the different colours of green you have here, plus the addition of the yellow to brighten it up. Those large leaves are quite outstanding, and I'm pleased you ignored the rule of 1/3's here!!
