Photo Friday: Hanging from a Cliff

This week I took a nice walk to Fort Williams, to take shots of the Portland Headlight in scaffolding.

The way I figure it, the best way to get the most out of my opportunities is to take pictures from multiple angles.  One of my angles was from the bottom of a cliff next to the ocean.  It was here that I found this week’s photo.  It was not, as I figured, of the headlight, but of something growing on the cliff itself.

As I headed back I saw a flower I had never seen before.  It looked like a columbine, but all the columbines I have seen were purple and white.  This was the first time I’ve seen a red and yellow columbine.

After a little research I learned it is an Eastern Columbine, and it’s not unusual to find them growing on cliffs.  So here, then is my favorite shot from that day.
