More flowers from Mount Rainier. This one is actually a fairly small plant (I put my sunglasses down for some size perspective. I love its purple-blue color.
I have always like these flowers, and been frustrated by trying to capture them in photos. The combination of the small size and how they like to grow in very moist, often dark spots means that they often come out blurry. Especially since I really try to stay on the paved or rock lined paths. I was surprised to learn from Wikipedia that they are in the primrose family.
I’m not much of a collage person, so this week’s challenge was a challenge. After humming and hawing I decided to try something totally new to me> making a digital collage of photographs. Here is a collage I made using Gimp from 5 of the pictures I took at Mount Rainier last week. I obviously have a lot to learn, and need to practice a lot but it was fun to try something new.
Some pictures from trails near Paradise on Mount Rainier for Cee’s Which Way Challenge.
The national parks are our shared Heritage. Here are a few pictures from the three parks I was fortunate enough to visit last year.
