🐝 And Echium Candicans! Normally, I keep a fairly low f-stop. However these flowers were so dynamic, I didn’t want to loose them into blur. I also wanted to have enough shallow depth of field to blur away the other flowers and simplify the background. So, here is a balanced f/7.1.
Spring has finally arrived in the highest elevations on the Blue Ridge Parkway, with blooms visible at the ever popular Cowee Mountain Overlook, milepost 430.7. Big shoutouts to @blueridgemoments @visitasheville and @takeahikenc for recent features! Show them some love!
