Photographer's Note

Hiking through burnt down forest near Minarets in Sierra Nevada mountains I found this bright yellow flower in full bloom in the midst of ashes demonstrating enormous power and speed of life.

To get this angle of view I had to dig a small pit in front of this relatively low plant. The demand for DOF was enormous and I would love to have stop 32 on my 17 mm lens. But there was 22 available only.

Scanned by Nikon CoolScan IV ED. Slightly cropped, levels, flowers sharpened using Unsharp mask level 65, 4 pix radius, resampled , Unsharp mask level 45, 1 pix radius. JPEG level 51 (Corel PhotoPaint notation) due to TE picture size limits.
