Camas Study 5
Well, I made it back to the camas field this morning for a third time this season. I tried to go yesterday, got all the way to the park, headed out on the trail, turned on my camera, and realized that the new battery I loaded was not charged. An unfortunate breakdown in my system. So I headed home and got my batteries charged for this morning. The field has aged noticeably in two days, so if I get a strong urge to visit one more time this season, it will have to be in the next day or two, and given that our forecast turns to rain tomorrow I think today's visit was probably my last for the season. Sigh. I haven't even looked through all my photos yet, so I expect I'll post a few more in this study. (Sorry if anyone is tiring of it, but this series of photos has represented some growth for me, and I'm interested in working though that a bit more. Plus I'm super infatuated with the flowers if you haven't noticed!) Today's shot is actually the last one I took. I was heading down the hill to leave and kept stopping and photographing as I went. I'm glad I made the stop for this flower, because this was just the balance of focus and not-focus that I was looking for today. Plus I think the color is pretty in its richness.
