Splashes of Sunshine

Uploaded: October 14, 2008


Taken on a hike high in the Rocky mountains on a September morning. It stays so cold up there that the snow barely melts before autumn and winter are immanent. So the wildflowers briefly come out in late August and September before the frost comes. We timed this beautiful hike just right :)

Ah, very lovely Sandy. Nice job of veiling. I can almost feel the chill of the ice cold water. The wildflowers add just the right amount of color. Beautiful image! #6598421
