While out photographing the wildflowers this spring I was perplexed at how to photograph chia. A typical macro shot of a single chia didn’t seem appealing. I had a vision of photographing a group of chia. The group I saw at Bartlett Lake wasn’t quite my vision. Yesterday after seeing a rattlesnake and being petrified to be on the ground along FSR 419, I decided to take a drive along Four Peaks Rd to see what I could find. Granted I was still leery about getting out of my vehicle, but did manage a few times. Along the road was a group of chia that might just work for my vision. I often see images of flowers that are quite artistic and thought that style might work for the chia. Regardless of whether anyone, including myself, likes this image, I wasn’t afraid to try something different. And different it certainly is.
