Anemone

Freshly blooming Western anemone in the high alpine meadows of the Cayoosh Range. Also known as the pasqueflower (and later moptops when they go to seed), these little flowers were blooming all over the meadows, each one looking more perfect and more photogenic than the last 🙂 Needless to say, we have dozens of photos just of these flowers never mind all the glacier lilies we saw…

I took so many photos of these little flowers at the weekend I’ve had the hardest time picking my favourite. But at the end of the day I love this kind of radar-dish view, especially against a blue sky and mountains. Just to give you an idea of the scale, the flower is probably about 4 cm/1.5 inches in diameter. The tilting screen of my RX100II came in really handy for getting down at flower level too.
