  the Alberta Rose which is not this pale
by zrim

Ok, I don't mean elusive as in hard to find. These flowers are everywhere in Alberta--I guess that is why it is the provincial flower. But dangnammit, these things are hard to photograph. I thought that this shot provided the perfect light to capture the pink colors of the Alberta Rose. No such luck. Completely washed out--looks like an albino flower. In real life these flowers are a brilliant pink. Not at all sure why they don't cooperate with a camera. Maybe they are some sort of poltergeist flower that is unphotographical.
