California Wildflowers

– Posted in: Garden Photography, Garden Plants

Now being empty nesters, my wife Mary and I took off on Easter Sunday with our dog Sandy for a day trip to Bear Valley in Colusa County, California, about 2 hours north of San Francisco.

I sent a web gallery of photos to some friends and got such an overwhelming response I wanted to share with others.  I do not have a personal blog, so I am putting them here.  When I sent the photos onto Fran, she suggested that I do this post, especially since she had just completed a post, Wildflowers In Israel, and assured me that I didn’t need to add alot of content, that the photos speak for themselves.

I confess now, The Camera Always Lies.  It was not the best of years in Bear Valley with only one truly spectacular location to be found near the road without trespassing.  This is a very wide angle lens focused about 6 inches from the closest flowers.

Attached is a link to a gallery on my website.   I have not posted my web galleries to GGW before now and in doing so I am by-passing my usual copyright notice.  So I need to say here, before  you visit, all photos on this and my own website are protected by copyright and may not be downloaded for any reason.
