Photography and the simplicity of wild flowers

  A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to spend time photographing images in a remote part of Yosemite.
The generous amount of rain this year resulted in a spectacular display of wild flowers this summer. I found the wild Azaleas particularly beautiful. They were growing in a small glen surrounded by Red Woods and Sugar Pines. This environment provided beautiful, natural lighting as well as wonderful photographic experience.
