DANGER Wildflowers Ahead

Uploaded: June 10, 2005 05:13:04


I shot these yellow wildflowers a few blocks from the house through a construction barrier with a 17-40mm zoom then cropped and applied a selective BuZZ in PSCS. These beautiful flowers will soon be replaced by a four lane divided street to handle the ever increasing traffic.
