Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple


We returned from the Sierras yesterday and saw the week’s challenge subject, purple.  I couldn’t immediately think of a photo that would capture that and I still don’t have what I would think of as something that defines purple.  In any case, my photo is of a beautiful vantage point between Homer Alaska and Seward where the wildflowers (I think they are purple lupine) were in perfect bloom and highlighted the mountains and valley beyond.  Hope you enjoy.
