Natural landscapes: the flowery viewpoint
ARROWLEAF BALSAMROOT, NEAR WATERTON LAKES NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
As you approach this park, in the deep southwest of this western Canadian province, you come across this stunning view of prairie fields and forests with a backdrop of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. On this trip, the wildflowers grabbed my attention and one of my photos put everything but the flowers out of focus. This approach meant the gobsmacking vista complemented, rather than competed, with the flowers.
Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter and, probably, a graduated density (darkening) filter on the peaks and sky.
