Santa Paula with clouds and flowers

Okay, I’ve given up on the wildflowers here in California. It’s just not happening this year. Even using a macro lens is pushing it. I can’t waste $$$$ on gas driving all around looking for flowers. I’m a MAN! And Men don’t scour the countryside looking for flowers, do they??? They look for rusty machine guns, and monster trucks and things they can grunt about.

 

So this weekend I gave-in and went to a little spot in Santa Paula which grows flowers with the beautiful Topa Topa mountains in the background. Used a Lee GND .6 hard filter to bring down the sky just a tad.

 

Should get quite a fill of wildflowers in Europe next week. Just hope the rain stays away.
