This photo I took along the trail coming down from Pinnacle Peak in the Mount Rainier Park. There are many beautiful areas in the park. Among the most beautiful are the alpine meadows. The meadows are surrounded by subalpine firs and many other kinds of trees and are often blanketed by carpets of wildflowers. This meadows in Paradise Valley, are one of the wettest places in the United States. They receives some 100 inches of precipitation per year.

In recent years tremendous care has been taken to avoid damage to the delicate alpine meadow areas in Paradise Valley, but this was not always so. Campgrounds, skiing and other winter sport-based recreational facilities, and even a golf course one existed in this area, doing tremendous damage. However, such activities are no longer available, and the area has largely recovered.

On my visit you can barely see that this area was once threatened. This flowered meadow contains heather and lupine and other wildflowers.

Hi Lori, what strikes me straight away are the wonderful summer colours here - the sky, the grasses and trees, and the flowers! What a place to visit; I wish I was there with you to see all those wild flowers. Just beautiful, thank you.

Hi Lori,
Lovely habitat shot with fine DOF despite low aperture.
TFS, regards, Ivan

You have shown us a really lovely meadow. I would like to see this with my own eyes. I believe you have a postcard here. The colors are gorgeous from the ground to the sky. Really enjoyed the note. Nicely done.

I have to say that I like this picture. the rings of colour coming from the right hand corner is really effective and you have a nice range of colours in the picture.

Hi LOri,
Looks great all those flowers a real natural feast. Good diagonal composition and details.
Well done and TFS

Hi Lori,
Lovley colors of the field of wild flowers. I like the diversity of all the flowers growing next to each other. The BG with the beautiful blue sky and trees is wonderful.

Hello Lori,
This is a very good picture of late summer!
A wonderful combination of flowers, located in the middle of some great nature sceneries!

Wow, this is a wonderful field of wildflowers, Lori. Wonderfully captured, too. I like the diagonal pattern and the touch of sky.

Hi Lori,
beautiful composition. The blue sky (with a little of clouds), the silvan flowers... all of it are great.
