This photo was taken in April of 2015 at the overlook viewpoint at Horse Lake Reserve Trail looking towards the Wenatchee Valley.
It is a panorama made from three vertical photos which I stitched together in Lightroom.
I had been up here several times during the past few weeks attempting to get some photos of the homestead and thought this would be a good day due to the cloud cover.
On the drive up, I noticed that many of the arrowleaf balsamroot plants were in bloom. Arriving at the parking area, I decided to go up to the viewpoint first and then to the homestead.
I started by using a wide angle lens but then realized that the valley appeared too far away so I changed to a short telephoto and took several vertical photos that I knew I would stitch together later.
