Start of spring by PeterJCoskun Start of spring by PeterJCoskun
CLICK FOR FULL VIEW

It's barely mid February, and already there are hillsides covered in wildflowers. With rain forecasted this week, the spring bloom should be looking much better than last year. Can't wait to see what it looks like in a week or two. Also, today is Arizona's centennial, so happy birthday to this amazing state full of incredible beauty!

Superstition mountains- Arizona.

very nice composition and processing. I can't believe spring flowers are already starting to sprout up there!

Thanks man! Yeah, all of us down here are surprised, hopefully this means an incredible wildflower season. Will be trying to get out as much as possible over the next two months. Just hope I can get light like this most of the time.

Heeeeeey, wait a second...those are CALIFORNIA poppies :laughing: What an amazing sight!! Love the light and your point of view :love:

No poppies here yet....

Thanks! I never really distinguished the difference between the California and Mexican gold poppies. Going to be back up here again a few times during the next two months. Will have a MUCH better display of color then.

kayaksailor Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2012
:laughing: I don't really know the difference either...they're probably all pretty much the same, but I've noticed that many of the ones that we've got on our property (in Northern California) are significantly smaller and of a brighter yellow than the flowers that are used as the roadway seeding projects and in people's landscaping...

I'll be watching for your photos :love:
