Golden Pathway

155th Street W & W Avenue D-15, Fairmont, Antelope Valley, Los Angeles County, CA, 4/2/2017 - 4/4/2017

In spring of 2017, I made several visits to Southern California’s Antelope Valley to photograph the blossoming wildflowers. Following the previous winter's heavy rains during an extended drought, California was enjoying a rare super bloom! I discovered this lovely view looking west from Broad Canyon at the north foot of Fairmont Butte and was able to photograph the scene at sunset. A meadow of tiny yellow daisies known as goldfields (Lasthenia glabrata) formed a pathway through the sagebrush toward the setting sun. The orange flowers are California poppies (Eschscholzia californica), also known as copa de oro (cup of gold). Liebre Mountain is in the distance at far left. Frazier Mountain and Tecuya Mountain are immediately to the left and right of the sun.
