We havea corner section in our backyard that we didn't put to lawn, annd this year we have a nice crop of wild roses. This one is a crop from a larger scene.  I just wanted to highlight the one rose in the light.  Tsken with my Nikon D7200 and Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8.

This is our "other backyard," Hatcher Pass.  My grandson took this the other day, of his friend from Texas who was visiting, when they climbed to the top of this mountain.  If you look to the far left of the image, while you can't see it, obviously, Wasilla is below the south slope of that section of mountain.  This gives a great vista and an idea of what we have within 20 miles of our house.  When the weather is nice, it's spectacular.  When it's not, like the other day when I was up there, it's terrible.  It was raining, hailing, 40 degrees, and the wind was blowing.  Not to mention, the visibility was for zip.  Anyway, here's Alex surveying the area from the top.  And Ryan doesn't mind my sharing his photos.  Almost forgot to mention.  The road going straight ahead goes over the top of Hatcher Pass and continues on to the community of Willow.  So there's your local area geography lesson for the day.

For another perspective, (can you tell I'm bored today?)  This is the peak Alex and Ryan were standing on in the above shot.  I took this one last winter from the parking lot of the area to the right and below in the above shot.  You can just make out the buildings there.

The flower shot came out good. I guess Sigma lenses are OK!

Indeed.  He does.

I really like doing flower pics.  I have discovered that sometimes the photo is just a small part of the original shot.  That was the case here.  It does help to have a nice sharp lens.  Make cropping more pleasant.

GREAT PHOTOS.  I love everything Alaska.  esp its wildlife and fauna, and of course, its topography.
