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.

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.

Cheers
