Lensbaby Edge 80, Wildflowers and Sunflare

With one kid at Driver’s Ed, and one kid off to a week of camp (and one working at Yellowstone this summer) I took off for a morning of shooting the wildflowers in Albion Basin. This is an area of Alta Ski Resort where every summer the flowers are incredible. It’s less than 30 minutes from my house, so I aim to take a few trips up there every year in wildflower season. My first trip this year was marred by a certain teenager who didn’t want to be there and was making it hard for everyone, so this solo trip was just what I needed.
I took my Edge 80 on my composer pro, and my goal was to master using flare creatively. It was far harder than I’d imagined, and I ended up with a headache, but I do love the images I got!
