Oxeye Daisy

Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 17 October 2013 in Plant & Nature.

Today we begin an exploration of Silver Star Mountain in the South Cascade Range of Washington State, U.S.A. The hike is a fairly easy 5 mile (8 kilometer) round trip. It was mid-July and the wild flowers were abundant.

Fairly easy is our kind of hike I have to admit...the old knees just cant take big steps but distances we can do all day long (well, almost). This is a wonderful shot, Steve, I love this kind of image - Beautiful!! Cloudy dismal day here in Vermont today...probably will not get that full moon (One night before official full) shot coming up this evening but oh well, it has been fun.

I like the way you have framed these two daisies and the use of selective focus. Very good light and a very fit dark background.
