Prairie View Lookout Trail
Indian Paintbrushes have fascinated me since I first saw them years ago in the Sunshine Meadows. Way back when, I tried to transplant these flowers in our garden but to no avail. The rootstock is actually a parasite that grows off the roots of other plants. I've taken hundreds of photos of paintbrushes, always hoping for that perfect shot with several layers of flowers in crisp focus against a lush green and blurred background. Someday the setting, the light, and my experience will come together.
These layers of color at the edge of Barrier Lake caught my fancy.
