Lake Blanche Paintbrush

Indian Paintbrush

This was taken early summer up by Lake Blanche in Big Cottonwood canyon (a bit of Lake Lillian is in the background), I liked the way this single wildflower had pushed up through the rock against all odds.

One of the drawbacks of doing outdoor photography is that for longer 5 mile+ trails like this you inevitably end up during the peak of the suns path overhead and the light is very harsh. Any shift in hiking time means you either have to leave long before dawn or plan on coming down in the dark. All you can do is pray that a bit of cloud cover will come through and help diffuse the light for you.
