memorial day weekend photo shoot

i cannot believe that i just had a 3 day weekend (memorial day, for those of you not in the states). i could use a few more days!

it was raing saturday (not abnormal for this time of year) so i ran errands, spent some time in the studio & generally tied up loose ends. we headed up to fairfield saturday afternoon.

sunday morning there was snow on the mountains & skies were overcast- which makes for fine photo conditions. the camas lilies are blooming on the marsh, looking like pools of water from a distance.

the light is beautiful- this time of year when it's overcast with just the right amount of sun peeking through the field turn almost a lime green, which is a lovely contrast to the blue/gray skies-

a lovely sunset-

wildflowers are blooming-

and there are lots of birds

and some mammals too ( this is a pronghorn fawn- probably not very old)

it was a very satisfying photo safari weekend. came back today and went to my friend's house to do more tie day. and now here i am doing some photo editing & tying it all together.

i did get the traffic box submission completed & put together, ahead of schedule on that. hopefully it will be accepted- i'll post the process another time.

have a great week!

What wonderful landscapes - but the barbed wire and flowers is my favorite. It would be a perfect layer for one of your pieces.
