Natural landscapes: the spring flower

PURPLE TRILLIUM, LOUTH CONSERVATION AREA, JORDAN STATION, ONTARIO

My wife and I recently returned from a vacation in Ontario where I had many opportunities to make pictures. One goal was to photograph trilliums, the province’s official flower, for the first time in many years. I feared I was too early to succeed, but this conservation area, on my final photo outing, was awash in trilliums. Almost all were white, but this one burgundy blossom made for what I hope is a pretty compelling picture. Do you agree?
