While mountain biking this week near Gooseberry Mesa in Southern Utah, I captured some pics over a few evenings of the changing colors of the flora and the sunsets.
Not only is the Milky Way apparent in the sky, but so are the Sacred Datura Flowers that bloom through the night. Shot on different nights in Zion Canyon at Zion National Park, Utah
Recently shot near the North Rim of the Grand Canyon.
The Kaibab National Forest is an anomaly in a land of deep red rock canyons and desert scrub. Situated high on a plateau, the Kaibab reaches some 9,000 feet into the Northern Arizona sky.
Cedar Breaks National Monument is a geologic marvel but in July, visitors come for the floral display. At over 10,000 feet in elevation, the seasons arrive later than sooner.
The Coneflower can take on many shapes and looks. It’s the ultimate shape shifter!
It’s spring and the flowers were blooming along California’s Pacific Ocean Coastline. Flowers include California Poppies, California Morning Glory, Daisies, flowering Ice Plant and Lupine.
I never heard of fiddlenecks until I tried to find out what kind of flower I was photographing because there were about a billion of them. In the foothills of the Tehachapi Mountains along Highway 58 are acres and acres of them blossoming.
Wildflowers were blooming along California’s Pacific Ocean Coastline. Some, I recognize, others I couldn’t identify even with my flower book.
Along Highway 46 in Central California are fields of mostly flowering yellow Mustard Grass. Winter rains have forced a beautiful blossom. More wildflower images along the Pacific Ocean and the orange hills near Tehachapi will follow soon.
