Painted fields
The blooms were so heavy, the fields looked like they were literally painted. The photo is unmanipulated. Peak bloom in Antelope Valley, CA. Fairmont Butte in the background. Taken 4/13/08.

Thanks! These hills could be seen from almost twenty miles away. It's a very unique place to visit for two months out of the year.

Are you aware of the sedative powers of
these poppy fields? Like in the "Wizard
of Oz," when Tin Man, Scarecrow, Lion,
Toto and Dorthy fell sound asleep. Did
you see a lot of folks passing out, or
were they drinking coffee? NICE pic!!!

I'm not sure about the sedative powers, but I was quite relaxed! Thanks

Thanks! The hills look as if they are painted. In a good year they are even more intense than this (a mediocre year from what I understand)

Hey Thanks! I'm waiting for El Nino to bring an even stronger bloom this year! Cheers!

Thanks for the kind words. Cheers!
