Here area couple more from last Monday’s trilliumfest.
Halfway down the path to the brook are a pair of the plants that come up every year and I photograph them annually. Their leaves are darker which really enables the petals to stand out. As you might guess, these are surrounded by pines.
As I was walking back up the path I noticed this one standing in front of a large pine, enabling me to compose with a natural dark background. There was enough distance between them so I could shoot at f/16 and still have the tree soft.
