In stark contrast to the two images in my last post, I thought I’d show you one of the flowers of pure beauty that lives and thrives in the sand at Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lake Shore.
I have no idea what this plant or flower is called, so feel free to let me know. I found this botanical among thousands of others on a climb on the eastern facing side of the dunes.
This day was also extremely windy, especially in this location, so I decided to climb further up, then down, to try and get away from the strong gusts. I ended up going along some very narrow trails, over and under trees of varying sizes, and in the end I found that there was no way to escape the wind. I basically just had to cling onto a tree with all my strength to steady myself in order to get this image. I imagine these flowers only bloom for a short while every year. So I’m happy that I was there to see it at the right time!!
I hope you like it! I sure do, especially after what I went through to get it!! 😉
