Avalanche lilies.

Haven't posted a flower for some time.
Seen at Mount Rainier National Park, Washington State, U.S.A.

No flash, however I did isolate the flowers in photoshop and then darken the background and bring out the shadows in the flowers and leaves.

I suppose I should have used a higher f/stop so that all the flowers were sharp since I was focusing on one of the flowers in the back, but I didn't want the background in focus and I am not skilled at photoshop layers or masks. Hope you enjoy.

Avalanche Lily
Erythronium montanum
