[Photography] Spring Flowers in California

I’ve said this before and I’ll probably say this many more times. I really do like Spring. Everything wakes up and starts blooming. The trees get a new breath of life and flowers start to peak out.

Here are some pictures I snapped a week or so ago.

Is it just me or do you also think of yellow as the perfect spring color.

Sunsets in San Francisco

Northern California is by far considered a very pro green, nature friendly and every tree huggers delight. Nevertheless it still had a decent amount of pollution in the air. Part of the blame can be put on the constant fires we have as extended dry spells visit. San Francisco’s smog content is not however the main focus of this post. The presence of this smog does how create the settings for some spectacular sunsets, and these sunsets are the main focus of this post.

This picture has such a zen like state. I can’t help but stare at it. I took this picture at a park next to the beach in San Francisco. The rolling hills in the background really helps to bring everything together. I really love the sun’s reflection on the picnic bench.

Spring Time and Spring Flowers

I took this picture walking around Cupertino in Northern California. Having moved to North California a few months before winter hit the rest of the country, I looked at the greenery around me and though that this must be what it would be year round. Everything looks so lush and green compared to the east coast where I’d be looking at dried up sticks and twigs for 4-5 months out of the year.

I was in for a surprise. Come spring the gardens around me started to blossom and give color to what was already a lush green background to start with. The result is that every time I walk though a residential area, especially in an area like Palo Alto, I feel like I’m walking though the Botanical Gardens. I’m greeting with a rainbow of roses and flowers of all types and form and scents.

I hope you enjoy this picture.

I love the deep intensity of the blue in the background and jelly fish look so awesome. isn’t it ironic that the most beautiful objects are the most deadly in this world?

A hammock, nice chilled lemonade and the sounds of the ocean beating on the beach. Seems like your in heaven. ohh wait, we missed a major part of this equation. The palm trees swaying in the breeze. There is something about about the sight of palm trees that just make you think of tropical islands where people don’t have a worry in the world.

Apparently the same applies for the underwater world. I captured these underwater palm trees at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Absolutely wonderful!
