I recently had a great time leading a client on a private wild flower photography workshop and was blown away by the beauty of the very green hills of the San Francisco bay area. If you’re unfamiliar with California Oak Trees you might think they’re always this green and beautiful, but in fact such vibrant color is fleeting as the vast majority of the year their leaves are yellow, orange and brown.
Amidst the sea of green were early signs of wild flower season, With late rains and cooler temperatures peak wild flower season has yet to reach Northern California, but even still a great variety of wild flowers cold be found. I’m still sorting through photos of the outing, but we had a good deal of luck at Rancho San Antonio open space and Pacheco State Park. Stay tuned there certainly will be more photos from this trip to come and I’m looking forward to the next time I’m able to share the beauty of wild flower season on my next private wild flower workshop.
If you’ve never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. ~Terri Guillemets
