This is am image that I shot a few years ago on Chinook Pass in Washington State. My first option and intention for the trip was to photograph a sunrise shot of Mt. Rainier reflected in Tipsoo Lake. Well, the mountain was covered in fog so that shot was out. I noticed that some of the clouds were breaking to the east so I went just over the pass and looked for remaining wildflowers. It wasn't a great year for wildflowers plus I was there about a week late but I was still able to find some. The biggest reason I have waited so long to work this image up is because I have been frustrated in the past because there is a lot of harsh light in the image making it hard to keep all the detail I wanted to. I took another stab at it after several years of acquired photo editing skills. The thing I love about this image is how the light plays with various elements. There is the sun rays, the direct light, the back lit flowers and all the clouds that are reflecting light in different ways. There are even various color patterns created in some of the clouds that are in direct line with the sun. I just had to keep working on this image because there is a special feel that the light gives this image.
I offer a variety of landscape, nature and wildlife images and fine art digital paintings. I also have many agricultural, farming and countryside images as well. Most of my work is from around the Pacific Northwest, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, British Columbia, and Alberta. Please look through my galleries or visit my website to view my full portfolio.
