Inge Johnsson 10/4/2010 7:22:25 PM

I'm overwhelmed by all your kind comments, thanks all of you. This particular ridge in the Olympic Mountains is about 3.5 hours from Seattle (including a ferry ride). I took off early from work and drove all the way out there in the hopes of finding avalanche lilies, which I had been told by a friend who's a park ranger were in full bloom. Needless to say, I was quite pleased to find these fields of flowers, with 2 hours left of the day before having to drive back home. It was well worth it, I think, but some would probably call it insane ;-) #8947601

Inge Johnsson 10/4/2010 7:25:28 PM

By the way, yes Karen and Michelle in Washington state, you need to get out there and explore the fantastic nature we have up here in the Pacific Northwest :-) I was just up at Cascade Pass and Sahale Arm in North Cascades NP over the weekend, and boy was it beautiful! #8947609

John T. Peters 10/4/2010 8:54:06 PM

Oh, I love those little avalanche lillies! Excellent point of view. Perfect. Nice capture. They wave quite a bit in the wind so that can be a challenge. #8947755

Every month, with our camera in hand, we go out and find what we hope will be the “winning photo.”
Those of us that don’t get recognized, just continue to search for that special image, until one day the Congratulations come pouring in from some of the best artist and friends anyone could image.
So to the Better Photo winners for the month of September, I congratulate you on a job so well done.
My very best to all of you, Merna Nobile
