This area is located on the east side of Folsom Lake. From Auburn, take Highway 49 south. Turn right on Rattlesnake Bar Road, and follow road south until the gate at the end.
I spent two afternoons at Folsom Lake looking for a spot to photograph the lupines at sunset. The sky was not as interesting as I hoped for, but I liked the idea of catching the sun setting through the tree in the background of this scene. I took several different shots, each focusing on a different part of the scene. I used Zerene focus-stacking software during post-processing to create the final image.
