    Although not the best wildflower year in the pacific northwest, this is the best for fall color I have seen in the high country of Oregon in the Mt. Jefferson wilderness. I hiked up a hill near my camp to get the lay of the land, and saw this intense patch of red. It was far off trail so I had to be mindful of how to get back and to not disturb the fragile ecosystem there.

    What you see here is mountain ash (yellow orange) and red blueberry and huckleberry. Not sure what some of the other yellow flora is.

    Photographed 10 days ago while colors where in its prime.

    Happy Fall Friday everyone! :)

    Single exposure 2 stop grad.

      I like them both but think this one is my favorite, somehow it evokes more emotion in me. I think the lines in this are more pleasing to me and the colors appear richer.

      Both incredible this one super incredible

      Great, inspirational photostream. Your pics certainly do inspire me to visit the places you shoot. Have you ever been to Australia? It would be interesting to see your work with the Australian outback light. Cheers
