Back in July I spent some time photographing the wildflower bloom in the high Sierra near Carson Pass. The Indian Paintbrush flowers were really wonderful, as were the flower blooms along the creeks in the area. These images were all taken at sunset or sunrise to avoid harsh midday light on the flowers. The wind cooperated fortunately, because it is very difficult to do low light wildflower photography when it is windy for obvious reasons. The new images are the first 4 in my wildflower portfolio which can be accessed here.
The wildflower season has ended in the Sierra, now we have some of the colorful flowers going to seed creating pockets of yellow and gold in the landscape, which signals the imminent arrival of autumn.
