Trillium Grandiflorum

Found this growing on the north side of the house we're renting in Everett. I wanted to get a decent image of it, but I realized that picking this flower and bringing it inside to photograph simply wasn't an option. So, with little light left in the day, and an erratic wind constantly moving my subject around and rain beginning to fall, I snapped off a whole slew of images using a black golf jacket as a background. This image is the best of the hastily created bunch. Hopefully I'll have better luck later in the week with calmer winds. This was shot with my Canon 50D and Canon 17-40mm F4 "L". Shutter speed was 1/60th of a second using an aperture of F 6.3 and an ISO of 400. You can learn more about this flower at this wikipedia entry.
