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! Having reached the height of my walk it felt surreal to be engulfed by these blooms—just like a fairy tale. I became determined to capture some images to convey that feeling so you can experience it too. Happy Super Bloom from California!
