A Gentle Way by ColinHSillerud A Gentle Way by ColinHSillerud
Above the alpine line, where snow packs fifteen-feet-deep five months of the year, an oasis of gueule de loup springs from the cracks.  As the sun turns over head, the faces of the flowers spin in unison, fighting to attract the few bees that venture so high.

This is a blend of 7 focus slices for the foreground depth of field and one different exposure for the sky. The lens is literally 7" from the flowers. That is why I needed so many focus slices.

The contrast of green and yellow against that blue sky is nuts, way to get my color sensory overload! Excellent comp as always too.

Thanks man.  I really wanted a sunset, but I'm pretty glad I ended up having the blue sky for contrast before it turned color.

Seem like a lot of work that's been invested here. Totally worth it. I would say this is an impressiv display of freshness. Great to see some colors at such a height.
