California’s Central Valley, once known as the bread basket of the world, is one of the most agriculturally rich places on earth and as such spring offers many opportunities for photographs of wild flowers. Fields of flowers are perfect for playful photographs of a couple for their engagement photographs or thoughtful photographs of a high school seniors final days in high school. Photographs offer the opportunity to remember things as they once were and wish that they could remain.
Photographs such as these are often best taken as the sun is low on the horizon, making the shadows long and the colors rich.
During my first spring back in the Visalia area I was able to capture these photographs of a mustard field in full bloom, and though the field was disked a few days later I will always remember the way that it looked during this spring and look for fields that hold a match to its’ beauty.
