Wildflowers Carrizo Plains

The contrast of yellow and purple blossoms is breathtaking at Carrizo Plains located about 100 miles northwest of Los Angeles. There are no trees growing on these hills due to the very low precipitation. If there is some rain falling during the winter month the wildflowers are coming out in full bloom.

Enjoy the image and keep on photographing!

PS: During the First Full week in April all seven photographers will present there best images of Spring flowers on this blog. I am looking forward to it.

Lone Cypress

The Lone Cypress is located along the Monterey Peninsula. A beautiful icon of this area, it is a Monteray Cypress, located only along this area of the coast and estimated to be about 250 years old. I feel very fortunate to have photographed it before a storm in 2019 broke it apart. It will always remain an icon of the strength of these trees to withstand major storms. Enjoy your day.
