Alpine Flowers

Discussion in 'Macro, Flowers, Insects, and Greenery' started by Vern Dewit, Jun 10, 2007.

  1. A few pictures from a weekend mountaineering trip in the Canadian Rockies. I love taking my macro lens along and capturing these beautiful flowers in their natural (and often very harsh) environment.

    #1 Purple Saxifrage in the high alpine.

  4. what a nice set of images!
  5. Very nice images!

    On the one hand I love alpine flora because it is usually more delicate than the lowland one, also I love the diversity.
    On the other hand I hate them because they are usually more difficult to identify than the lowland ones, mainly because of their dwarfish growth.
