Sun Worshippers (California Poppies)

    Newer Older

    Wildflowers are elusive this year, but I did finally find a few poppies to shoot. Emphasis on "a few." Although I don't have many wildflower shots, I DID come back from the weekend with more oak, green hills & cloud drama-ish skies than I know what to do with, so that's what you'll be seeing from me for the next week or so (but I thought I'd offer this bright, sunny respite before I dive into those again).

      Glad to see that you did find some and better yet that you found some unexpected gems.

      So cheerful! I'm hearing reports that around the Bay area the wildflowers are rebounding from the recent rains.

      I've been looking for these but you're right, this spring has been kind of weak compared to years past. Good color contrast and bokeh.

      Awesome! You're definitely right about the wildflowers -- it's been such a light winter that even finding a few is a feat. It'll be interesting to see how things like the dogwoods do in Yosemite this year. That said, I love the orange/blue contrast here. Great shot!
