Lupine, Chugach National Forest, Alaska.

I found a beautiful field of lupine yesterday  I have said it before, but lupine is an amazing wildflower.  I have seen it in some of the warmest places on earth – Death Valley, and in some of the coldest – Denali National Park.

To get the soft purple glow, I framed this between two other lupine which were very close to the camera and thus completely out of focus.

    The oof lupines add so much to this, really nicely done. And great job with the color, I never seem to get that color right.

    Hi Stefania,


    I’m sorry, I wish I did speak French.

    I used a 100mm macro lens for this photo, and that allowed me to get very close to the flower. I think your 10x lens might work fine if it allows you to get really close. There might be a macro setting on your camera that will help with this.

    Thank you very much Stefania.
