Fireweed. My favorite flower. Seems like I wait all year to see it, and then when it comes, I get depressed that it signals the end of summer. But I just loving seeing it all over town. It brightens up yards and ditches along the roadside. A random burst of pink here and there. This image has some more dying lupine in the left background.
I am patiently awaiting my favorite spot to burst with pink so I can shoot there. It's an unbeatable and beautiful view.
