A few weeks ago, I got to shuttle myself out to Death Valley National Park for the Super Bloom. Unfortunately I had to be there President’s Day weekend. That’s simply how life works sometimes. I had to accept that it was going to be crowded and still just a bit before the peak of the wildflower season. Given the rarity of this event, I couldn’t afford to be picky so I took the opportunity as it presented itself.
So I bet you’re expecting to see lots of flower shots, huh?
The super bloom ended up being a footnote in terms of satisfying images. The crowds, wind, and haze made flower shots really difficult. But being there was astounding even if my resulting images don’t reflect the epic nature of this year’s wildflower display.
Instead of staying frustrated with my inability to capture the glory of the super bloom, I got into full-dork mode on infrared and historical photography in Rhyolite and Titus Canyon.
With that, here’s a little slideshow of my whirlwind trip to Death Valley for the Super Bloom. Enjoy!
Adventure on, friends!
