Meadow Wildflowers

Staring out over a high mountain meadow I was mostly aware of only a sea of golden stems blowing gentle in the breeze. However, I soon discovered a closer look was warranted.

Hidden among those golden stems and grains were a wide variety of wild flowers in all their natural beauty. Beauty for my minds eye and an abundance of food for local wildlife.

In places such as this you can for a moment forget the abundant abuses of the environment by mankind.

So with these peaceful scenes I wish everyone a wonderful weekend. :-)

    The meadow looks like a fine place to enjoy a good book or ever a nap.

      Except for the heat that was present during this visit, I believe your absolutely right about that book and nap, Steve.

    The meadow image is exceptionally fine – and it really cries for a print maybe even on a slightly structured paper.

    Hi Earl,

    Very nice image of the meadow. It is very calming to look at. The contrast and coloring are soft and pleasing!

    Have a great weekend.
