From a distance, the alpine zone of the Rocky Mountains looks like a lifeless, barren place. A cold and un-inviting realm.Those willing to make the effort will find this assumption far from reality. A closer inspection reveals that even in such a harsh enviroment, life thrives. High above treeline on an extremely steep talus slope, a cluster of Colorado Blue Columbines are in full bloom. Pikas dart about the rocks collecting tundra grasses to store away for the long winter. A marmot calls out with a shrill whistle from a large boulder above. This is the alpine life. Take a closer look and you'll see it.

such beautiful flowers C: Sounds like there was a lot of wildlife around where you were! Flowers are more photogenic though, haha XD

The texture you manage to capture is very tactile. I usually don't feel as though I could reach out and touch the flowers!

Great shot!

This looks wonderful, I really like the colour of the columbines and how they are all clustered together filling the frame.
