At 11,000 feet elevation, many of Montana's plants are "stunted." They are diminutive versions of what exists at lower elevation where the seasons aren't as harsh.

This photo is a macro "stack" of more than 40 images, each taken from slightly different focal lengths with a 200mm macro lens. This allows the otherwise-shallow depth of field produced in a single image to blend into a photograph where the whole subject is in crisp focus.

The tiny, alpine moss blooms in this picture are no larger than the push end of a pin, but they are beautiful, revealed here in their full detail.
