The wildflowers here at Ochoco Divide campground are coming up everywhere. They are in the campsites, along the road and especially in the fields. It is magnificent. I am not a great photographer like Al of the Bayfield Bunch and don’t have a high end camera, but the fact that it is digital gives me the opportunity to experiment until I get what I think is a nice picture. That involves taking 100’s of pics and deleting those that just didn’t work out well. Below are some of my better shots.
You can enlarge any pic by clicking on it and then clicking on it again.
Wildflowers are very small
All of the above wildflowers are very small with some not even a 1/2′ in diameter. Part of the problem with photographing wildflowers is the breezes that come up and blow the flowers just when you have the focused.
I had a great time finding all these different flowers. Some of them could only be found one or two flowers in a very small area. Because of their size I got a lot of hiking in as well to find as many different kinds as possible.
I love seeing all those pictures of the flowers. It is so much fun when you find a hidden treasure in the underbrush. They are beautiful
Thanks for the nice photos, Jim. I wish I could see some wildflowers around here.
Great pics and a good excuse for a hike.
I love wildflowers – God’s Garden!! Thanks for sharing your wonderful pictures.
Great photographs, Jim!
Wow so pretty and most of my favorite colors!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good Job, young man! No, seriously the pics look great. We also love taking their pictures. And you are right about the wind moving them just when you make “click”.
They look super cool when you blow them up (takes a few seconds)
Jim: You forgot to tell us the names of these beauties.
Keep those photos coming. Beautiful. Darn that breeze, but it does help on a hike.
nice-and those two little fuzzy guys in the last pic look like they could be at the bottom of the ocean when you enlarge them. thanks!
Very nice snaps Jim! Be well.
