Today is my 60th birthday, and to celebrate my wife and I went up to Yankee Boy Basin outside Ouray. I’ve never seen the wildflowers so thick and beautiful—the combination of heavy snow and recurring rainfall has done wonders! I ended up with so many columbine pictures I thought I’d devote a post just to them. So enjoy!

Clump of columbines--they're thick this year!

The camera is my trusty Pentax K100. It does nicely with colors. All these pictures were shot raw and then fixed up in Photoshop Essentials 6.
