Lovely shot. It seems like all the Columbines I've come across lately are a very faded blue color. These are really pretty.
Thanks Andy! I know what you mean.....and many in this area were that faded blue color as well. I got lucky and spotted these high above the trail, so I decided it was worth a little extra effort to try to get some decent shots. I also saw some white & yellow columbines on the same trail, but they were pretty beat up so I just enjoyed them for a bit and moved on.
