Camas Study 4

This morning I headed back to the blue camas field at Lacamas Park in the aptly named town of Camas, Washington. I only took my 80-200 lens, with the goal of taking a super isolating closeup of a camas blossom, done in the style of my photography icon, Jim Brandenburg.  Feeling pretty good about this one.  I'm starting to get the hang of this kind of photography, and I actually think I'll head back there one more time tomorrow morning to try out a few other ideas I have.  The field is absolutely magical early in the morning.  It's a common theme with the other sunrise folks, runners, hikers.  We are all so awestruck by the overwhelming beauty of these flowers that you have to stop and share it with anyone you happen to meet, so I end up having a lot of conversations with the other early risers as we marvel at these beautiful flowers.

Simply beautiful photo. And I love the thought of strangers stopping to admire and discuss flowers.
