The Making of "Balsam Root and Lupin"

How the winning photo of the May contest was made

"Balsam Root and Lupin" by BobKG

I would like to thank everyone who nominated and voted for my photo. It was truly an honor to win your votes as there were so many great photos submitted.

I have been using Pentax cameras for most of my life, starting with my Spotmatic in the late 1960s (it still works). I entered the digital age in 2011 with the purchase of a used K200D. I then bought a new K-3 in 2016 and love this camera. In 2018 I obtained the Rokinon 16mm F2.0 lens primarily for astrophotography. I also found it to be excellent for landscape photography and used it for the photo I entered in this contest.
