During this past weekend’s Backcountry Photography class, we asked all of the students to present a vision statement describing what they wanted to get out of the class and provide a theme to help direct their photography.  Going into the class, I knew I wouldn’t be doing a lot of photography as I was in instructor mode, rather than photographer mode, but I set out a goal for myself as well.  Since we were backpacking and with a large group, I knew that bird photography was going to be difficult.  Instead, I simply took my normal lens, the 24-70mm zoom, for demonstration purposes and then also carried my 105mm macro lens.

When we scouted the trail earlier in the week there was a lot of trillium in bloom so I knew there would be several chances to photograph wildflowers during the trip.  Not only were there a large number of plants in bloom, we had a great day for flower photography since it was overcast providing great even light.

I wanted to share these photos though I have no idea what species they are.  All of my flower books are currently in boxes in storage so I won’t have a chance to spend some time identifying these images until we move in just under a month.  If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on what kind of flowers these are, please do not hesitate to let me know in the comments.  Thanks!
