I am reminded of how my friend Bill Geibel conducts an endless search of the perfect Manhattan cocktail. I’m somewhat like that with wildflower photos, in particular the Larkspur. For some reason to get a photo of the flower completely in focus has been an almost impossible task over the years. Yesterday while hiking in the Columbia Gorge up the trail to McCall Point, I found a sheltered spot out of the wind with about the right amount of light, and got what I would rate as a “10”. (zoom in to see the detail) To see more photos of the hike click here for the Trip Journal entry.
