Wildflowers and Steamboat Rock

This is taken about halfway up Steamboat Rock. It was cloudy and windy, but nice light for pictures. I was playing around with a new Canon G12.

How's it goin', shorty?

Western red cedar (Thuja plicata), actually part of the cypress family, reaches up towards the sky to conduct some photosynthesis far above the Lake Twenty-two trail.

Tweedy's Lewisia

Tweedy's Lewisia in its favorite cliffside habitat. The finest specimens are usually found high up on a sunny rock. I took this shot while clinging to the cliff with one hand and holding the camera above my head with the other, aiming by "guesstimation". The shot was made easier by using a 14mm super-wide angle lens with huge depth of field.
