Late Summer Blue Wildflowers

Bunch of blue wildflowersBunch of blue wildflowers – Nikon D500, f7.1, 1/400, ISO 320, Nikkor 500mm VR with 1.4x TC, natural light

I don’t know what species of wildflowers these blue flowers are, I just know that I enjoyed seeing and photographing them. I’ll look them up later and find out what they are but sometimes I don’t care if I “know” exactly what species I am photographing, whether it is a bird, flower or beast, I just want to be there in the moment, keenly focused on my subject.

These wildflowers caught my eye in a canyon in the Wasatch Mountains before the sun had risen high enough to light them up and I didn’t bother to photograph them then but on the way back up the canyon the sun had risen high enough that I couldn’t resist taking a few shots.

Life is good.

    They are lovely. They look quite like our Patterson’s Curse (Echium plantagineum) which can (and does) turn whole fields blue. A weed, and classified as a noxious weed, but so very pretty.

    What splendid beauty. But chances are good it’s considered a weed. I love weeds except for goat heads and I’m busily slaughtering all the baby goat heads I can. They don’t play fair! 😉
