Well today began the next installment of DLWS this time coming from lovely Santa Roas California. Saturday is the normal scout day where we go around making sure we have all the great shooting locals picked out for the rest of the week. This is a special DLWS not only is it the last one for the Spring months and won’t start up again until the fall, but it is also my last DLWS. Having the great fortune of being able to come to these events has been wonderful but due to scheduling conflicts in the fall, i won’t make it to anymore. Nevertheless this one should be great. Now for the day of scouting we arrive at Marshall Point.
As it might be rather obvious, Marshall Point is along the coast up towards Bordega Bay. As it might also be obvious, there are wild flowers in bloom over the western side of the Sierra’s. On the Eastern side we still have snow, but not here, Oh no it’s the pretty poppies. Now I have never been much of a flower guy, never got into the whole finding the perfect flower to get the perfect flower shot but i have noticed a lack of landscape shots containing fields of flowers. Since i do a lot of wildlife and landscape photography one would think that would be natural to have. Well since i don’t have any great flower shots i thought this would be a good time to try and capture some. You might call it a self assignment or even just an experiment, but over the next few days I’m going to with the best of my abilities capture a shot that really says Spring is here. We’ll see what happens.
