Default it was supposed to be sunny!

went up to Mt Rainier yesterday, the forecast called for mostly clear skies and sunshine for the afternoon. got there, after a 2+ hour drive, only to discover the weatherman lied! not being one to waste an opportunity, though, i figured i'd make the best of it. the wildflowers were in full bloom - the aroma was incredible! - just wish i'd had better light for 'em!

Glad you made it for the wildflowers...I visited Mr. R NP in June and there was 3 ft of snow on the ground! Re. the weather, I also found that it was quite subject to change..sunny on the way to MRNP only to get there and it be so foggy and cloudy that you couldn't see the peak anymore...and then clear up in an hour.

Great capture of the wildflowers! I think the overcast sky provided some nice difused lighting which shows of the flowers rather well especially in #1 and #2.

You don't have to excuse the weather. They are great as they are, just because of the light. There are geometrical forms tom discover in each of the pictures

1 delta wing form

2 8-form

3 Z-form
