I liked the 2nd shot of the Rhododendron, the water falls are great, amazing detail on the Pink Lady's Slippers, I really like the last shot, nice job

Sometimes the last one is the best (composition-wise anyway).

The final photo of the lake (sunset?) is outstanding. Great muted color.

Beautiful photos as always Mole! I really like the dark background of the flowers, and the waterfalls are beyond wonderful. I never tire of pink Lady Slippers, in fact I'm quite excited, as they are almost ready to start blooming in my area. I am hoping to get to my family's cottage in Maine for the upcoming long weekend, and if we're lucky, the Lady Slippers will be putting on their annual show.

Bluenose - So glad you enjoyed the hike! You'll have to come experience it for yourself someday. To answer your question, lighting was just sunlight - I moved to a spot where the flower was in the sun, but the background in the shade, and experimented with F stop & shutter speed...

Hans - Thanks for your kind and specific comments!

Penolta - So glad you liked that grouping - I got rather muddy getting the best angle, but mud hasn't hurt me yet!! That last shot is actually a sunrise from back at the home park. We have a number of good sunrise spots, not many good ones for sunsets...

MtnMan - Thanks for your very kind words. Hope you & yours are having a GREAT weekend at the cabin, and that the Slippers are blooming abundantly!

I know these are older, but I'm slow at commenting. (You are probably going to get several more belated comments from me today, so I'm sorry if I clutter up the page ) I agree that that last Pink Ladyslipper photo is outstanding. I love the lake views, too, especially the last one with the mist- amazing.

And I think the lighting on the Rosebay Rhododendrons is spot on... really like those.
