Wildflower Madness...
Posted By: heliphoto, 03-22-2009, 11:11 AM

Went on a drive to the Tuolumne River Canyon and environs yesterday - the place is going off with wildflowers...

Two shots with the DA* 16-50 on the K20D combined with enfuse (mild HDR you could say )...

I really like this one Josh. I am sure there was so much potential here for great shots. Well done. JIM

Thanks Jim.

Thanks again Jim...

Here's another angle on that scene - not quite as simple, but I like the layers in it...

Thanks Bruce - I have so far avoided the big drop in the canyon, but there are the remains of dead cars strewn all over the wall - it's steep, and a one lane road with no guard rails - I think however that most of the cars wrecked there were probably either insurance scams or stolen, not accidents.

These are beautiful shots. I've visited Lake City Colorado and environs, and driven the Alpine Loop to Ouray over Engineer Pass and I can tell you, even though its wide enough for trucks to pass I was white-knuckled.

Some of my favorite photos from "before digital" came from there - and yours bring back fine memories.

beautiful shots.

Thanks monochrome - do you have any of those old shots scanned? I'd like to see 'em...

Here's some closeups of the poppies... Anyone know what the purple flower is? I can't remember seeing one of those before...

Heliophoto: The purple flower is Chive, AKA as wild onion

All of my photos from the 1994 to 2004 period were Canon P&S or MESuper M-50/1.4 "snapshots" that are in Walgreen's envelopes unlabeled. The prints are in about 30 shelf-feet of binders in our basement. Cataloging the negatives and having the decent ones scanned is one of those "projects" that I never get to.

Engineer Mountain above 12,500 is awesome wild and beautiful, as is Slumgullion Pass and the surrounding Lake San Christobal area. We hope to retire to SW Colorado - but in the current market we may only get to retire to our graves.

Fine photos. Really like the second image. I love rolling hills and it looks you are in the middle of them.
