Enjoy The Little Things by catch---22 Enjoy The Little Things by catch---22
...for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

~Robert Brault


I blew this shot last year. So this year I returned to the very same spot. I found it somewhat comforting that in this vast rugged world fragile beauty endures... about half way between the top of corkscrew pass and the summit of red mountain #1, south of Ouray, Colorado. these little ones are hanging on at around 12,500 ft (3,810 m) above sea level.

The title of a photography could be less important than own work. In this case, the seduction begin with a comparision between the simple title an the vision of square...The mistery is in the amazing contrast between the flower and the mountain. The angle is simply...wise:

The photographer gets to put a couple of small flowers at same dimension of Mountain: Flowers and Mountains seem to see eye to eye...have a silent dialogue, as new neighbors or old lovers. The expertise of photographer do possible the miracle of an authentic equality between the big things that steal the look...and small things that can be smelled but not always views. I insist: the mistery is in the angle...but is too in a highly developed sensitivity to nature who knows it like the palm of your hand .... and is not afraid.

Congratulations, Denis :rose:

Yes in the most grand panorama a little flower ashamed hiding behind the stone ... when I visit major scenarios I also make these small experiences... I experienced that in the Grand Canyon ... in Yosemite ... in Death Valley.
