March 18, 2016, Los Gatos Creek Trail, Campbell, California. Not the peak of this season. Can I believe it was four years ago? I can. It was.

Be well. Do Good. Be kind. Create.

    • Thank you. Surprisingly not easy to find a good specimen AND good lighting for this kind of view. This one wasn’t quite right in the lighting department. I had to help it along in post.


  1. A yearning for spring, the promise of healing from the imprisonment of cabin fever and the joyful greetings of color…of sound…of freedom has me dance along the edges within this image wrapped in silk scarves of golden orange and scents, citrusy and slightly sweet.
