picnic in the poppies

 

 
gorman ca 1992


Visible from the freeway these flower covered hills compelled travelers to pull off and get a closer look. The spontaneous urge drew young and old alike to hike into the steep terrain.

Normally I prefer to photograph the scene unmarked by man but this vividly captures the hypnotic energy these wildflowers have on humans and bees alike. There are 56 individuals in various candid poses visible in the details of the print.
