Due to health problems, my photography activity was minimal for a few months. I am doing better, and finally been able to get out and take some pictures. This time of year presents few options outside for photos. I have always enjoyed walking in Wilderness and Pioneers Parks and photographing the various plants and flowers. These are some that I have taken recently. Because the out of doors is primarily monochromatic in January, I kept these as black and white. I love black and white. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did taking them.
