We spent some time in the mountains and managed to escape the heat. A day spent photographing some Alpine flowers on Windy Ridge was the ticket. There are a lot of pics to process, but here is the first installment.
I have to look this one up. It has been a long time since I've seen it, let alone so many.
Elephant Bells. See their little trunks and big ears.
Two whole stalks of elephant bells.
Reflections in a beaver pond.
Meadow full of flowers.
OK, so these aren't exactly alpine flowers, but the spuds did have a grand time playing in the snow on a fine July afternoon. And the snow ought to be enough to qualify this as my Iron Craft 30: Hot. Hot. Hot. entry.
There are more great entries in IC 30 to be seen here.
