Wild Rose Country

This wild rose (Rosa acicularis), Alberta’s provincial flower, was glowing among the trees a couple of mornings ago when I was out early in Bragg Creek.  The sun had just cleared a hilltop across the fields so the light was still soft and warm.  Early mornings in the summer are a source of great inspiration from and communion with nature for me.

A simple photograph of a lovely flower in the hills near Sedona.

The yellow blossom from the deep purple cactus were a surprising pairing for me.  It was these complementary colours which drew me in and I worked with the shaded hedge in the background to isolate these two elements.
