Beautiful Carpet

While recently traveling from Texas to Oklahoma, I began spotting Indian Carpet wildflowers along the highway. Once in Oklahoma’s Wichita Mountains, I made sure to grab some images of this beautiful wildflower:

I always love seeing the Indian Carpet blanket the landscape. Unfortunately, I could not find a dense carpet in the Wichita Mountains … only crossing over from Texas to Oklahoma, where there were insufficient shoulders to pull over for image capture :o(

  • Canon 7D body
  • Canon EF180mm, f/3.5 macro lens
  • Gitzo 1258-LVL carbon fiber tripod, with Kirk Ent. HD ballhead
  • ISO 250

  • Shutter 1/1,000 sec. to 1/1,250 sec.
