While at Montezuma Well near Camp Verde Arizona we were down by the irrigation canal area where a sign stated that the golden columbine grew nearby. I spotted this beautiful specimen as we left the area. I could only get a photo from the back/side. The columbine was growing in an area that was off limits to human feet, and mmmm, it was growing at the top of a rather steep hill too! So, I settled for this, thanks to Sony and it's zoom!
Photo was cropped, sharpened, and subjected to darkening and contrast enhancement. No color changes were made.
