Outstanding in the Field

There’s a field near my house that has bunches of these flowers, but I’ve never stopped to take pictures. It’s too close to the beginning of my ride to want to stop and besides, the weeds around the plants are growing tall. This morning, as I passed the empty field just north of the Hillsboro Costco,1 I noticed a few clusters of the flowers. Out came the phone for a couple shots.

I wonder whether my point and shoot would have taken a better shot. Or maybe, there’s always a better shot to take.

Update: On the way home, I again stopped at the field. The weather was clear and the sun had changed sides of the sky.
