Nothing but miles of clean air and "emptiness"! Another wonderfully thought provoking shot Tom. Amazing that it's so close to a road!

Thank you Jan, John, Epi, picsonthemove and José Mª for your visits and comments.

Jan- Thanks for the name, both latin and common, for this wildflower. Apparently this is a European species that has naturalized in North America. I appreciate your expertise.

Best regards to all, Tom

P.S. The title of this image is derived from the Bombus terrestris, or common Bumblebee, about to land in the middle left of frame. :)

Thanks Bruce. I wanted the flower and the far mountains in focus so I used F/22 to accomplish that. Also I was lying on a 45 degree slope to get the angle. I am thankful for your appreciation of it.

Best regards, Tom
