Last year's drought kept many of the native flower species from blooming. This year is much different with flowers almost blooming with a vengeance. One of my favorites, the glade coneflower, seems to be doing especially well. I am seeing fields of flowers where there were none a couple of years ago. Here are some different looks. I played around with the Tokina 10-17 I had kept from my first go-around with DX. Also used the Sigma 150 and the 300 f/4.

Wonderful! That first one is dynamite! Great composition!

I also like the selective focus on the last one! Looks like you had a great time shooting.

I realy like the soft feel of nr 5, very femimin and intimate.
I dont know if that is the way one should look at pictures that way, but it touched me that way.
Thanks for sharing

Thanks, Karen. The best part is that the drive is only about 10 minutes from home.
Really excellent series. Like the fifth shot!

Thank you, Nico. I think you explained it just fine.
Excellent set, all nice but first is my fave...! :smile:
Thanks, William. The first one is also one of the first shots I made that day.
Beautiful shots - great variety. I like the use of the WA.
Thanks, Chad. I like playing with the Tokina. Sometimes I leave the distortion and sometimes I click the button in LR to remove it. I'm glad I didn't sell it when I "left" DX - since I am back with it.
