Table Mountain Wildflower Shoot

Posted by
Bill Brown (California, United States) on 1 April 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

This past Saturday I took an early morning drive (about 2 hrs) to Table Mountain to shoot wildflowers. Table Mountain is located in Butte County, Ca about 5 miles north of the city of Oroville. Each spring people flock to the area to view and photograph the wildflowers. This was my first time and I hope you will enjoy the images to follow.

Hi Bill, I'm Denny Jump's sister and he really gives me a lot more credit than I deserve when it comes to ID-iing flowers, posies, etc. I can't figure out what your purple flower is, but I loved your picture. And Denny's crazy about the camera!! Figures. I'm looking fwd to your wildflower shots.
