The incredible display of California poppies shown here was shot by me on 16 March, 2017 between 9am and 11am at Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore. Being surrounded by these blooms is such an incredible feeling! Intermixed with the poppies are several different types of wildflowers in white, blue and purple. The scene today attracted all kinds of artists, from photography workshops to ladies painting the hillside and younger folks doing photo shoots. Please join me in reminding visitors not to step on the flowers and you are welcome to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like any high resolution copies. (click any photo to enlarge btw)
In the San Joaquin Valley of Central California exists hundreds of acres dedicated to fruit orchards known as “The Blossom Trail”. Peak bloom typically happens in late February to early March though not every orchard is progressing at the same pace, so the amount of blooms are going to vary.
