finally, some flowers

a few weeks ago, the mister and i trekked on up to the owens valley to visit Manzanar. on the trek home we took our time exploring that part of california for we do love our state. as luck would have it, we were traveling down the 14 freeway when i realized it maybe, kinda, sorta was still poppy season and the poppy reserves were nearby. so, with a left turn here and a right turn here and a bypass of other people with fancy cameras we finally found a spot to hang out. if only we had thought of it a week or so sooner...there's always next year! check out more pics from the weekend, here.


  1. How do you jump so high? I am amazed by your mad jumping skillz. & the flowers are lovely. Hope you are all recovered & feeling wonderful.

  2. I always love your jumping photos, you just always make life fun.

  3. These photos are BEAUTIFUL! I love the vivid colours.

  4. Yes, how do you jump so high? The poppies are beautiful! Thank you!

  5. Wow! Your pictures are beautiful!

    I love Red Rock Canyon. You probably already knew this, but it's been in a ton of movies and TV shows. I'm a nerd like that.

  6. foof-it's an illusion. place the camera low and angle upward! :)

    amber-aw thanks!

    the storialist-thank you very much!

    Cathy-poppies are quite difficult to photograph, thank you!

    Cheetah-thank you. i did not know of Red Rock Canyon being a location. I'm a bit nerdy liek that as well.
