Just returned from a recent vacation to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, it was more of a family gathering so I wasn’t able to get out and work the park much but did make time to get a few decent shots. I will post some soon but for now here is a Wild Columbine I shot earlier this spring, these little gems are really hard to shoot and if you get any wind you can forget about getting any images at all.
Patience is the key to this wildflower, try shooting in low light with calm winds and low iso settings to get the beautiful colors to pop in your images. Tripods are a must with a cable release if at all possible. I shot this one at Clifty Falls State Park near Madison Indiana when they were are their peak seasonal bloom, these are just a few tips to help you out when shooting wildflowers, just take the time to get out there and shoot and with a little practice and patience you can get some great results !!
Thanks for stopping by and taking a look, and don’t forget to view this large for the best viewing !!
