Wind-blown Balsam Root, Columbia River Gorge.

Wind-blown Balsam Root, Columbia River Gorge.

It was so windy out here this morning that I didn't think it was possible to pull off a single photograph (and the ticks didn't make things easy either!). I had to boost my iso up to 400. Rarely will I shoot faster than 100, but I had no choice. When shooting in these condition, you just have to keep pulling the trigger and hope you get a slight break in the gust. I actually like the mix of some moving flowers and some still ones in this scene, it adds to the feeling of motion. All in all not a very good year for wildflowers in the gorge.
