This is what will likely be the first of a few Painted Trillium-Trillium undulatum posts. For those of you who have been visitors to the blog over the years you know it is a personal favorite and the highlight of my spring flower photography….just a skosh ahead of lady’s slippers. Having said that I hope I make more post-worthy images of them.
Monday was a fairly overcast so the light was a little subdued. But I like how that allows the flower to shine and the background to recede. This was on a slope and a little difficult to reach and stand while shooting. There was a lot of moss and dried leaves, some of which hid gaps in fallen branches that made footing tricky. But it was worth it, I think.
