Borrego Springs Part One

Borrego Springs Part One

Winter 2016-2017 brought seven inches of rain to the Southern California desert landscape.  One of the graces of this winter’s largesse was a spectacular wildflower superbloom.  To see the desert floor carpeted with flowers was undoubtedly a quasi-psychadelic experience.

Borrego Springs is a small town that sits beside Anza Borrego Desert State Park.  The pictures featured here were captured in that town’s lush, citrus scented Coyote and Henderson Canyons.

These images were taken with my Pentax 6×7 using both Kodak Portra and Fujichrome Velvia films.
