Arizona Wildflower Season
Posted By: gnaztee, 03-19-2008, 07:43 PM

Best in years, I'm told. First three taken with my Tamron 28-75, second three taken with my just-arrived-Monday-from-another-forum-member DA 12-24. All with K10D and in Saguaro National Park, Tucson, Arizona.













C+C Welcome, thanks for looking!

Okay, I'm not a mathematician, but "First three" and "second three" don't add up to 5 images. So not knowing if it's the last image in the first three or the first image in the second three, I like the detail in #2 best and I think it's the best of the "three" which ever it is.

After looking at nothing but snow for months these pictures are a welcome ray of hope that we will have spring too! Nice job!

I cannot see your photos - not sure why?

I'm in AZ, I went to Lost Duchman last week, but realized the flowers were not yet bloom. I'm looking to go back out this weekend or next, any suggestions of where to go within the Valley area? I've heard Pistacio Peak (sp?) is a good spot ..

Sorry about that, I edited a picture on my zenfolio site and I guess it changed the link address. Thanks for looking!

Sometimes the desert can feel really..."brown." So it's nice to see some colors right now!

I guess I'm glad I didn't go to lost Dutchman last week, it was on my list. Here is a web site that people update for flower spots:

Arizona Wildflower reports by DesertUSA

Picacho Peak is rated highly by some, not so much by others. I've been by on the freeway a couple of times lately, looks like there are big patches of Gold Poppies.
