Lupines at Folsom Lake, California

I took these photos of lupines at Beeks Bight on Folsom Lake last April 1, 2022. The weather was ideal: sunny, warm, blue sky, and with a wind speed of 3 mph. Of course there were plenty of lupines in bloom. I had a wonderful time taking photos there.

North Table Mountain Superbloom

On a trip to North Table Mountain Ecological Reserve, Oroville, California, I took these pictures there of the wildflowers in blooms. It was Easter and there were many wildflowers like lupines, purple owl’s clover, poppies, and many other blooming wildflowers. The whole mountain plateau looked like a giant Easter basket full of colored eggs or ,in this instance, colorful wildflower blooms.

Japanese Garden in Micke Grove Regional Park, California

Here are seven images that I took with a Nikon Z 6 using a Nikon Z 85 mm lens of scenes within the Japanese Garden located in Micke Grove Regional Park near Lodi, California. It’s a quiet tranquil colorful place nestled under huge valley oaks. This beautiful spot is almost hidden from view in the Central Valley. For me it’s a delight to discover in the early morning light. The garden is only opened in the morning from 9 am to 1 pm.

Here are ten pictures that I took of Magnolia Tulip Trees around Stockton, California. They bloom during February here every year.

I delight in photographing the tulip tree blooms in the Central Valley every year.
