Wildflowers of the Sierra Nevada Mountains
Just released: greeting cards featuring my photographs of Wildflowers of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Each card contains an original pgotograph mounted in a 5" x 7" card with space inside for a personal message. Cards are sold individually and in sets of four, with mailing envelopes included. The wildflower is identified on the back of each card. Call 775-832-8421 for details.
This project started in 2008 when I began photographing wildflowers from Yosemite to areas north of Lake Tahoe. As I hiked from week to week on different trails, I soon realized that I was facing five months of Spring-like weather. It started in April with wildflowers at lower elevations and continued into August at higher elevations. Plus, as the weeks progressed, different flowers would appear. For example, if a meadow was covered with yellow Buttercups in May, by June that same meadow was covered with blue Camus Lilies.
The process begins again each Spring with so many varieties yet to photograph. If you prefer prints to cards, check my website gallery Flowers and Plants. Many wildflower images can be ordered from this website in a variety of sizes and formats, including canvas prints.
