McGuire Ridge is one of my favorite photography locations. Unfortunately, the road is deteriorating. Loose rock and trees encroaching on the road are beginning to make this a "bush beater" special.
I'm always looking for veratrum viride and whenever I see it I have to stop and try to get a good shot. The lines and shapes lend themselves to black and white treatments.
While I was paused I noticed some fern heads emerging nearby.
Then it was time to tackle the rock slide and steep access to the ridge. There was still a fair bit of snow as I side hilled over to one of my "go to" locations.
I took the usual photos of Slesse and Tomyhoi, as well as the border peaks while I waited for the sunset. here were some interesting rocks so I set up the tripod and focus stacked smoe shots.
Around this time of year the wild flowers make their apperance.
Without clouds in the sky there wasn't much chance of a stunning sunset so I started back. Sometimes it just the direction that your looking because when I crested the ridge there was some good light to the west.
