Wild Wildflower West


“Nobody sees a flower – really – it is so small it takes time – we haven’t time – and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”

  1. Breathtakingly gorgeous landscapes and vignettes!

  2. Such vivid colors. Truly wonderful photos!

  3. The landscape shots look like impressionist paintings. 🙂

  4. I needed some flowers this morning! Thank you Jane!

  5. I do like flowers, particularly when the background is blurry. So beautiful. However, I like waves just as much.

  6. Such a wonderful series Jane. A pleasure to view!

  7. Once again, you found a worthwhile quote, and your inclusion of people in the landscape again gives that image a quality that I like very much: it helps put me there. I love how that view in “Waves” is framed, and the way the light is handled in “Landing.” The Ice plant is great, too. It looks like spring has rushed right into summer, and you’re taking it all in….but slowly, like friendship. 🙂

  8. Particularly like “Landing” and “Morning Sun” – nice work Jane

  9. Your enticing photographs with multicolored wildflowers and distant ocean views are gorgeous Jane.
    It must be hard on you taking these pictures to have to walk this beautiful country.

  10. Morning sun and Waves (of wild flowers) are my favourites, but what I would really like to do is walk on the wildflower side with my (Nikon) 🙂 in my hands. Beautiful photos Jane

  11. just gorgeous Jane…reminds me how special this time of year is!!!

  12. Lovely set of images, Jane! 🙂 Which lens/es are you using?

  13. The combination of the wildflowers and the ocean are pure magic, Jane.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  14. A beautiful gallery of images.

  15. I love the CA coast – your photos are the next best thing to being there. 🙂

  16. Must be a joy to the senses walking in those fields!?

  17. After I look at the pictures in your post
    I want to be back on the California coast.

  18. Beautiful, thanks for sharing! If you ever want to see some of the amazing wildflower meadows at Mt. Rainier let me know, I’d love to take you. To quote John Muir: “The most luxuriant and the most extravagantly beautiful of all the alpine gardens I ever beheld in all my mountain-top wanderings.” (referring to Paradise at Mt. Rainier).

  19. Just heavenly, Jane. Wildflowers in abundance! I hope there were many bees as well, as they are much needed. I have never heard of the Ice Plant – very special and beautifully caught!

    • Thank you, Ann-Christine. Loads of bees…we must always to root for them. The ice plant grows all over the coastline on the rocks– a red succulent that I am captivated by. You’ll see some in my next post. 🙂

  20. Oh, wow, those are spectacular! I have to admit I rarely read quotations on people’s blogs, but the Lady Bird Johnson one caught my eye because of all the work she did to beautify Texas’s highways with huge swaths of wildflowers. The look of your fields of flowers against the blue surf is just gorgeous.

  21. Lovely! The specific focus in Landing caught my attention. Here’s one beautiful moment in a vast world. Take the time to see. Fits your opening quote perfectly.

  22. I love the title of your blog, Jane, and the images take my breath away such is the beauty and excellence in your techniques!

    • Hi Pete, Thanks so much! It’s such a spectacular spot. I wish I had your close-up skills…many interesting small creatures out there. I admit, I had a chuckle with the title– glad you like it. 🙂

  23. Lovely blooms… nice pics (Suzanne)

  24. Stunning photos. Love the quaking grass in the last shot.

  25. Love the ice plant

  26. Wow, waves and waves of flowers! beautiful photos Jane! ❤️

  27. Beautiful Jane. Is it a superbloom or does this happen every year??? Especially liked the ice plant – which I’ve never heard of.

    • Thanks, Tina. I thought it was going to be an off year since it was drier but this is normal. Not a superbloom. Glad you like the ice plant. I’m sure you’ve seen the red and green succulents that are very common on the coast. These are the flowers.

  28. Another set of thoughtful, beautiful images.

  29. WOW these are beautiful images Jane 🙂 There’s nothing like those gorgeous Fuji shades of blue.

  30. Wild flower wonderland beautifully captured Jane

  31. Hi Jane! You did indeed take time to see the flowers! It always amazes me that even when one sees the vast beauty of a meadow, there is so much more to see in the tiny parts that make that meadow so beautiful………..I love the post! Suzie

  32. What a wonderful array of wide angle and closeup shots from Points Eyes. Each one stunning and breathtaking, so hard to pick a favourite. Really do love all of them. Were these taken on the same day? If so, it looks like an amazing sunny day. Hope you are enjoying summer, Jane. Soak up the sun and take that camera for a workout 🙂

    • Thanks so much, Mabel. It’s an incredible part of the coast here.Pleased you enjoyed them! I did take them all in one hike and luckily the fog stayed away that day. Hope all is well in Melbourne! 🙂

  33. All the images are outstanding. I really liked the impressionist feel of Morning Sun.

  34. As always, a gorgeous set to please my senses.

  35. What a beautiful site, lovely images Jane well caught!

  36. How beautiful and beautiful and exhilarating

  37. Sooo beautiful there, Jane! I love the grasses! I love the wildflowers! I was several times in this area and I think it’s one of the nicest parts of the USA!

  38. Yes, to have a friend takes time. Thank you for the reminder, as well as the stunning photo. What a fabulous sight! 🙂 🙂

  39. Beautiful images, brought back good memories of watching the seals.

  40. Stunning. You give me something to strive for!

  41. So many beautiful images! I love ‘Landing’ and ‘Morning Sun’ especially. Photos do help us look and really notice the beauty in the world.

Love to hear what you think...
