I shot this image earlier this spring, all these beautiful wildflowers you see are wild phlox, I hiked down into a natural depression in the Smokey Mountains called White Oak sinks. It is kinda of off the beaten path, a place of unbelievable wild flower blooms where a lot of people come from all over the east to see the incredible display of wildflowers. But in my case when I arrived we had just had temperatures in the teens, snow flurries and high winds.
Most of the images I captured were blurry or the flowers had been froze out or were past peak conditions. I did manage a few images, but my timing was off again, photography can be so tough in the fact that you have to be able to catch all the conditions right or your done for the year. The last couple of years my timing has been off needless to say, hopefully the next couple will be better.
I shot this image with a 24-85 mm lens set at 24mm, my aperture was set at f/22, ss1/2 second and my iso at 100. I couldn’t blow this one up past 8×10 because the wind was blowing the blooms and the image was rather soft, but all things considered I liked it and it will stay in my files.
