Backlight through Poppies
Photo Location: Anza-Borrego Desert State Park 
Posted By: GeoJerry, 03-30-2019, 11:42 PM

A few shots from last weekend's so-called superbloom in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. The second shot was taken near the first shot, so these are the same variety of flowers up close and then standing back to see the big picture.

Beautiful shots! Ever thought of doing some astrophotography at this spot? I could imagine what it would look like with fireflies flying over the poppies, and the Milky Way over the mountains.

Terrific photos! I love the muted lighting of the first one. It is interesting, I had no idea that these Poppies were completely different than the ones up here in Norcal.

Thanks Prince! I did try a few night shots near this spot, although I don't know if I'd be so presumptuous as to call it astrophotography I'll post a few later on. No fireflies though in this neck of the woods, as far as I know!

Thanks so much Todd! Actually in thinking about it, these probably aren't poppies (at least not the orange California poppies we're used to seeing everywhere), I just made an assumption there. Not sure what they are, but they're probably brittlebrush, or maybe California coreopsis.
