Corn Lilies

Posted by

June is a good month to photograph corn lilies in Yosemite's high country. I found these lilies in Summit Meadow along Glacier Point Road at an elevation of 7300ft. I had soft evening light, and the blue sky served as a giant softbox. I used my Canon 100mm macro lens for this image opting to place the focus on the first fold. By using a medium aperture of f/9, the succeeding leafs gradually diminished in focus.
