What an incredible display of California poppies at Walker Canyon in Lake Elsinore! I arrived early in the morning with only a few people in sight and the poppies mostly closed. Scattered patches of tiny blue and purple wildflowers found their home among the poppies, which really made it feel like I had stepped into a Monet painting. With the sun bearing down as I made my way up into the hills, the poppies began opening before my eyes! It felt surreal to be engulfed by these blooms—just like a fairy tale. I became determined to capture some images which convey that feeling so you can experience it too. Happy Super Bloom from California!
