It's been so hot here lately that I just had to look at the amazing photos here in an effort to recall how pleasant springtime is. And it worked, the beautiful images posted here brought back the joy of feeling a warm breeze, sunny skies, and a rebirth of wildlife and flora.
I found a new joy this past spring, which happened by surprise, photographing wildflowers. I can’t wait until next spring, because I hope to spend numerous days enjoying the pleasure of capturing the color, freshness and splendor of mother nature at one of her finest moments.
Here’s a few of my favorite signs of spring images from 2008.
A beautiful and free spirit enjoying a gorgeous day
Baby Blue Eyes reflected the color of the sky
The birds were singing and the air smelled sweet
Poppies soaking up abundant California sunshine
Closeup view of a poppy petal
A dry river bed appears to flow with gold
Goldfields and Lupine
Some of the flowers growing close to the ground were very small
The hills are alive
reaching for the sun
The vibrant poppies were stuningly vibrant and majestic
Beetles were activly polinating next years show
Great Egrets cruising around seemingly enjoying the fleeting magnificent signs of spring
