This is my most recent (and perhaps best) journey wildflowering Carrizo Plains National Monument. Wildflowering is just one of the completely awesome things I do to feed my addiction to photography…in fact, I have a feeling that most people use their ‘fancy’ cameras as an excuse to go and see cool things (see: every cool tourist destination ever). And this is cool. Sometimes, I think about what it would be like to head out on a journey without my camera. I may look at things a bit differently, I’d be less likely to get down on the ground and stick my face in a small patch of flowers and more inclined to look at the grandiose scale of the seemingly infinite Carrizo Plains. However, both are are epicly beautiful & fleeting…from the baby blue bonnet families to the pronghorn elk ~ the former salt lake to the California poppy!
This year, the Wildflower bloom made it to “SuperBloom” ~ and as much as you can tell from these photos, I assure you, there’s nothing I can say, post, print, etc. that will demonstrate truly how super the bloom is. You gotta check it out for yourself! And if you can’t make it this year, no worries; below are a few samples of the grandiose and the macro…enjoy!
