In Search of Monet...






"Perhaps I owe having become a painter to flowers."
Claude Monet


lens...105mm macro, ISO 500, 1/640 @ f 3.2


I took these while waiting for the sunset at Minaret Vista last week...
We met our friends there for cocktails and a delightful summer repast,
while watching the sunset become a study in silver and light...
Debby told me that the Indian Paintbrush takes on a pink color
at our altitude...

I don't know about you...but I didn't know that!!!
