A Skyrim Flower Child

Sad Dunmer and Snowberry
My dark elf isn't pretty.  She isn't cute or sweet or nice.  She will gladly assassinate you from the shadows using a Dwarven bow that will suck your soul into a lovely gem for use in her black arts.

She's also deeply dedicated to finding new and unusual flowers throughout Skyrim.

What?  Everybody likes flowers!  Kill the darkest necromancer in Skyrim and you're liable to find some Thistle or some Deathbell in his desk.  Yes, yes, they're for his potions. Of course they are.

Here are a few of the pictures I've taken in my travels.

Many times I've wandered off the road in search of flowers and instead have found hot death. For example, I got this lovely shot of a cascade of waterfalls right before a sabertooth cat ripped my face off.

Lost-Face Falls
Witness the serenity and the beauty of the Sleeping Tree - before yon giant came over and stepped on my head:

A Prelude to a Splattering
A quiet moment with my horse, Impediment, before disaster struck as the sun rose.  In a word? Troll.

Before Trollface
I think the game knows when I pause to take a screenshot and just sends whatever horrific abomination it has waiting in the wings.  I have to admit, I've gotten some great flowers from off-roading, along with the painful, agonizing deaths.

If you haven't picked up Skyrim yet, do so. It's beautiful and deadly.
