The lupine superbloom at Folsom Lake is currently drawing hordes of photographers and other folks from all over Northern California, causing massive traffic jams and parking problems in an area of the lake that’s normally very quiet. But what many people overlook (thankfully, I guess) is that, even in the middle of winter, there’s always plenty of beauty to be […]
The theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Anything to do with jets and planes. I had a dig around in my archives for this one!
