Spring Bloom in Sierra Nevada Foothills

Spring Bloom in Sierra Nevada Foothills

The Sierra Nevada Foothills are alive with color this early spring – After several years of drought and a wet January the wildflowers are taking advantage now of the early warm conditions to come alive. Near Fresno California the San Joaquin River winds its way up into the Sierra Nevada mountains. Along the way the steep canyons offer excellent conditions for wildflower blooms. Occasional an area explodes into a SUPERBLOOM.  I had the good fortune to explore one such bloom this past weekend (Feb 2016).  California Poppies, Lupines, Wild Mustard, and Fiddleneck among many others .

Alabama Hills – In California?

Alabama Hills – In California?

The Alabama Hills near Lone Pine California is located in the south end of the Owens Valley situated along the Eastern Sierra Nevada. In the Shadow of Mt Whitney the area is rich with photographic opportunities. Over the next week or so I will be putting up 4 posts of photos from a recent weekend excursion to the area.  The first set will be a view of the landscape mid to late day – not optimal light but quit a scene none the less.
