Wild Flowers

It has been a little tough to get good wildlife and outdoor photos this year because the weather hasn’t been very cooperative. It has been my luck that when ever I get a chance to pack the camera gear up for an outing the clouds roll in and the rain or just poor lighting takes over. Thursday was no exception. Never the less I ran from the rain and found my self a few kilometers away from home in an area that my family used to spend a lot of time. About ten years ago the forest suffered a major forest fire and was left looking pretty barren. As I drove through the forest I could see that was just the opposite. Mother nature has turned the forest into something you could maybe see in a big green house. Without the low lying bushes and tree branches providing all the shade the ground covering vegetation takes over with a fury. Wonderful to experience, wonderful to see in nature.

  3. Nature has a wonderful way of regenerating itself doesn’t it? The seeds of the flowers you photographed so beautifully could have been lying dormant for many years just waiting patiently for this opportunity.

    • I believe your right. It was great to make the turn up the forest service road and see all that color when we had expected to see total devastation. Thank you for the input.
