Oh, Tom, if you knew how much I loved wildflowers and beautiful captures of them, you wouldn't be at all surprised to know I faved this! :) Gorgeous - what a backdrop the beautiful textured red rock walls made for these pink beauties and what a great eye you had to spot the potential of a gorgeous capture! Lovely, just lovely! #9524695

Thank you, Patti, Val, and Deb, for all your wonderful and touching words! You are all so talented that I am greatly flattered by your comments! Val, I'm not at all sure what made me stop and take several images of these flowers with that backdrop! I had my mind totally set on getting to the red rock past the flowers! LOL! I guess we all have an inner artist that just takes over (in my case it can be rarely, LOL)! Thanks again, my friends! #9528371
