Corn Field

Corn Field

Yea yea, I realize that this isnt a corn field in the sense that youre all used to, but this is corn Corn Lilies to be exact Willie has an obsession with the way Corn Lily leaves twist and curl into beautiful abstract shapes and when we found a huge field of Corn Lily on our first day at Mt. Rainier, we had to spend an hour or so photographing them. The entire trip he would keep his eye out for the perfect patch (which he only sorta did find).

Just after parking and heading on the trail up Mt. Rainier, in search of wildflower fields, we came across this area of Corn Lilies. We searched high and low for a patch of leaves that chris-crossed with each other in beautiful shapes but something else caught my eye: the 2 small flowers that sprung up in this scene.

A lot of time landscape photographers will garden the scene remove weeds or place flowers in the scene, but in this case I touched nothing – these were 100 there before I found the photo (and were still there after I took the photo).
