Natural landscapes: Wind-blown flowers
BROWN-EYED SUSANS, WATERTON LAKES NATIONAL PARK, ALBERTA
This is one of the windiest places in the Canadian province of Alberta, so making good flower pictures is a considerable challenge. I lay on my stomach and used a shallow depth of field on my Nikon D90, in order to avoid blurring. I also made about a dozen exposures to also insure at least one picture where the blossoms were in focus.
Waterton is a stunning park, in part because there are no foothills – the prairies come right up to the peaks and that’s rare in the Canadian Rockies.
