Sunday Drive

I went out to Shell Creek again on Sunday.   It was glorious with expansive fields of yellow.   People were walking, having picnics, taking photos, cycling, and enjoying the beauty of that spot.   It wasn't over crowded at all, just people meandering through the fields in awe of nature.

The yellows were both brilliant and soft, depending on the flower and the stage of blooming.   People commented that the lupines haven't shown their pretty blue.   Of course we don't know if they will each year, but we hope.   And a few spots with poppies caught my eye.  But mostly it was the yellow.  I took this panoramic shot with my phone from the middle of a large field facing west.  





I was glad I wasn't wearing my relatively new sneakers that have a lot of white.


Mother Nature is definitely dressed in her finest at this particular spot.
