Couple of Images

I have continued to take photographs this past month.  I just didn’t get around to either processing or posting them.  Below are 2 from the past week or so.  The first is a profile of a showy lady slipper.  These flowers seemed to be blooming in mass this year.  Where I would see a small bunch in previous years, were rows and rows of bunches, some pushing over 20 individual flowers.  Finding isolated ones was far more difficult that in the past, so I took advantage of this one which was at the back of a small bunch of around 5.  The second is the fishing pier at Lasalle Recreation area about 20 miles SE of Bemidji.  It was a nice, calm morning the other day when I went out for sunrise.  I took a chance at an HDR Panoramic image.  This was created from a series of 5 compositions and 5 shot brackets.
