What’s Blooming?

White Yarrow- from a quick hike Sunday morning. I went early while the wind was calm. I was the only person on the trail both going and coming. It was wonderful having the hills to myself for just a little while.

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!

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

…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!
