Weekly Photo Challenge: Unique


2012 Matthew Branch – From The Ashes

While working as a wild land firefighter I came across a bunch of small purple wildflowers high in the Sierra Nevada Mountains while on assignment. The forest around them was devastated. These flowers alone survived the heat of the fire because they were so small and close to the ground. I found them growing in small patches, completely surrounded by ash. In a totally burnt and barren landscape, they were truly unique.
