The Lupine Fields

I finally got out to shoot wildflowers! I had planned to go somewhere else, but a couple of closed roads took me way out of my way, so I decided to go to San Jacinto Wildlife Area, where I usually go birding. This rainy winter has turned the area into a flower wonderland--lupine, wild mustard, fiddlenecks, baby-blue eyes, and a lot of unidentified yellow flowers. All the years I have been going to this place, I've never seen it like this. Some places the mustard was over 6 feet high! The only thing I missed was California Poppies. This view is of lupine and mustard, with a treeline in the background.
