Infinite Flowers of Cement Ridge

Uploaded: January 27, 2013


In June of 2009, Cement Ridge of the Black Hills was sooo in bloom that you could hardly take a step without stepping on a wildflower. But Cement Ridge always has a significant breeze blowing so to increase the depth of field I took three shots of this scene varying the focal point then layered them together. It is almost an infinite focus on infinite wildflowers.

Have to admit that I've never seen anything like it. I photographed the mountainside every way I could think of and am still processing the shots off and on. I don't feel like I've truly captured it -- yet. But this is a piece of what I saw. #10546403
