This past weekend my gf’s dad was kind enough to show me some areas I hadn’t seen near Mt. Rainier. This image comes from an unmarked forest road near Sun Top lookout on HWY 410 by Mt. Rainier. I bushwhacked through a stand of old Alder trees and stumbled across a single patch of these bright pink and blue flowers. I had never seen anything like this in the high country before and it was the only patch of flowers like this in the area. I went off to scout the area for some more meadows and such but I couldn’t get this image out of my head, so I decided to come back and photograph this area.
This is 8 images focus stacked and 2 for dynamic range. These flowers were extremely tiny and I was essentially down on the ground trying to photograph them, lots of fun!
