Against the Sky

 

Today we went out to the California Poppy Reserve near Lancaster, California.  In Los Angeles County, this is in the middle of nowhere, and here is where you see the beauty that was California before Los Angeles and urban sprawl took over.  The rains of the past winter have produced an abundance of flowers – more than in many years.  Here is the first of a series I took today.

It’s funny how weather can change from one place to another.  We drove 70 miles, through canyons and back roads to get here.  From our 71 F city we came into a cold (50 F) and very, very windy environment (30-50 mph winds).  All I had for cold weather was a vest and a short-sleeved T-shirt.  Brrrr!

This is a panorama of about 5 images.
