I must have flowers, always and always - Claude Monet

Southern California’s wildflowers continue to color the landscape.  If the orange poppies of Lake Elsinore embody the inland heat, Wildflowers, "torrey Pines state reserve"Ready to unfurlTorrey Pines State Natural Reserve then the purple hues of Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve reflect its cooler ocean climate.  A different color palette, but the same painterly feel.  Mother Nature is a masterful impressionist, but I enhanced the feeling by adding a little photo impressionism of my own to some of the photos.  As an added bonus, the thick fog rolled in, setting the stage for my favorite image of the day (with nary a flower in sight).  The images seen here, and several others, have been added to the California Spring gallery.  I hope you’ll take a look.
