Almond Blossoms in French Camp, California

Here are seven images that I captured of blossoms in some almond orchards located in French Camp, California. You can find them easily along French Camp Road in the Central Valley. I understand that they are the first fruit trees to bloom and the last ones to bear fruit in the summer. They usually bloom during the last two weeks of February.

While driving around near French Camp, California, I took these six photos of almond orchards blooming there. It was a beautiful, sunny day.  For me, the almonds blossoms are a sure indication that spring is arriving soon. The almond orchards around French Camp and Lathrop tend to bloom during the last two weeks of February.

I took three pictures of the almond orchards not far from French Camp Road near Lathrop, California. The last picture I took while watching the sunset over the San Joaquin River. In the background is Mount Diablo. I was sitting on the March Lane Levee Road, Stockton, California. I used a Nikon D600 FX DSLR along with a Nikkor 50 mm 1.8 prime lens and a Nikkor 60 mm micro 2.8 lens. It fascinates me to watch bees pollinate the almond blossoms. Nice to finish a day with a colorful sunset.
