  POPPY RESERVE

 

 Typically, lack of rainfall will limit the poppy bloom each spring.  While Lancaster experienced a little more than

average rainfall in 2008, the winds were relentless.  While

all of these images were taken at the reserve, I had to

resort to an extremely high ISO and high shutter speeds

and 12-24 and 200-400 zoom lenses to capture anything

that resembled poppies.

MPH winds

and the blistering hot desert sun better than

most humans.
