Macro Lens Photos of Memaloose Hills’ Wildflowers


A beautiful day to break out the prime macro lens and take wildflower photos.

The slopes of the Memaloose Hills west of Mosier were alive with color.

Dramatic purples, blues, reds, whites and yellows dotted the landscape.

The warm sunshine brought out the wonderful smells of the rich soils and fragrant flowers.

The floral show was about as good as it gets, at least until the upper alpine meadows clear of snow later in the summer.
