In a field of yellow Coreopsis, these bluish purple blooms of larkspur stood out to me. Vibrant against all the yellows surrounding it. Equally stunning and beautiful, standing out in the crowd.


Super Bloom Carrizo Plains

Posted on Updated on

I had heard about the Carrizo Plains a few years ago and wanted to find it. It was a Saturday and the original location I wanted to shoot at didn’t pan out so I decide to go for it. I arrived mid morning and there were already several cars in the valley. I started looking for any place that had less people. The road sign said Caliente Ridge and I followed that to the top. Looking back at the valley below, I knew I made the right decision.

#34 and Rosemary Blossoms

This week I pulled #34 from the Lightbox Photography Cards set. “Macro photography is a challenge all by itself with a wealth of subjects for you to choose from.” I took several photos that I thought fit the criteria of the challenge. The hardest part of this challenge? Getting close enough to the subject meant sitting or lying down in the dirt and rocks.

A Walk In The Forest

I haven’t been out shooting this past month but it gives me the opportunity to revisit some of my past adventures from earlier this year. I enjoy a good walk in the forest. The trees and flora paint a pretty picture in colors and textures.
