Throw out the blanket, or find a nice rock in the shade, then relax and let the perfumed breeze fill your senses with the sweet scent of Spring.

Yarrow in the Meadow

I took the above image a couple of weeks ago while hiking in Calero County Park in South San Jose, CA.  I and several other photographers hiked 5.5 miles and spent 6 hours photographing wildflowers.

Here’s another one from that day…

Triteleia Laxa- or it’s common name Ithuriel’s spear. This is the first time I’ve seen this wildflower, and I found it again in Sunol, CA last Saturday!

Wildflower

A friend and I went for an easy hike in  Sunol Regional Wilderness Saturday morning and we found these tiny mushrooms.

Fungi

…and nearby along the creek where it pooled up a bit we found this lovely little bouquet of Spreading Fleabane…

Spreading Fleabane

I used my Lensbaby Composer Pro with Soft Focus Optic at f/4 for all the images, and for the mushrooms, and Triteleia Laxa I also used the 16mm Macro Converter.  For the two landscape images I used the Wide Angle Attachment all mounted to my Nikon Df.

On this last image of the Spreading Fleabane I really like the swirling background and how much it reminds me of the Petzval Lenses.

I hope you find time to enjoy Spring this week!

More to come…

  2. What a great way to spend the day – thanks for sharing Deborah.

    • It was fun Dan, but challenging doing the hike. I got out of shape too fast over the winter. Hope to remedy that with more hiking.

  3. Your doing well with your Lensbaby, some very nice soft photos

  4. Very fun to get to join you on your jaunts. The one flower looks like the alliums we have here…I wonder if they are related. Really enjoyed the photos 🙂
