Last April, I spent a wonderful week photographing wildflowers in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park when I attended the Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage. Longtime readers of this blog have seen several photos I took that week. So far, most of the photos have been macro photos of a single wildflower.
Recently, I’ve taken another look at some of the photos from the trip and discovered several that show groups of wildflowers. As I looked at the photos, I remembered just how amazing it was to see so many types of flowers growing together – not in a planned and planted garden. Rather they were growing where they happened to be.
So here are three of my most recently edited photos. I’ll have all three of them available at shows this spring.
These photos give just a taste of how beautiful the wildflowers are in the Smoky Mountains in the Spring. The 2009 Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage is scheduled for April 22-26. I’ve already made plans to spend that week in the Smokies – photographing more amazing wildflowers.
