"Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer. Camp out among the grasses and gentians of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of Nature's darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but Nature's sources never fail."
---- JOHN MUIR - "Our National Parks"
The words of the founder of our Sierra Club and protector of Nature certainly fit the Mammoth Lakes area of California's Eastern Sierra Nevada.

Excellent composition, good presentation of the nature, good idea to focus on the grass. I also like the creek on the background. I think this is one of the best your photos for last time.
Oh, I see this your archive shot. Good collection of so interesting photos.

The plant is certainly standing to attention for your portrait of it, and looks like its been lit by a spotlight! And what a stage is stands on with the rich color and the excitement of the rushing water just behind. Very nicely composed, great light and superb clarity!
Thanks as always
