I have been driving by this area for over 25 years. In that time, I have never seen the wildflowers bloom like this! I went to shoot here the day before this image was taken at sunset. The wind was blowing, moving the flowers all over the place, along with the light being hazy.
I went home that evening a little bummed out on my shooting experience , but knew I had to try again, this time at sunrise. I don’t sleep much and that night I slept around 2hrs. I woke up at 4am, drove back out to this spot and had the experience I was hoping for. While I was shooting, a deer ate breakfast 50ft. from me...it was a very peaceful morning. Grateful.
