This Arrowleaf Balsamroot (Balsamorhiza sagittata) is growing in the fields of Kekuli Bay Provincial Park right on the shores of Kalamalka Lake near Vernon, British Columbia. In the few days I was staying in Vernon I visited this park four times. It was on my last day, on the drive home that I made this photo – and it was fairly close to the images I had imagined at that location. My first day I was there looking for sunset only to realize the sunset was not in the right direction for what I wanted. The next day the light was great for a while but when I returned to Kekuli Bay a storm brought some wind and horizontal rain – so nice wildflower/lake photos were not going to be easy. This did present another opportunity I had not anticipated though – and I’ll write about that later. Luckily the conditions were just what I wanted on my way back home, and I knew exactly what I wanted to shoot having been there numerous times already.

  1. What a fantastic picture! I love the little “sunflowers” stretching towards the sun… This place looks like it could be in Norway somewhere, guess it’s not that different from Canada 🙂
