Desert in “Superbloom”.
Subtle – the word best describing this. I grew up in SoCal and trust me, even a subtle â€œSuperbloomâ€ is a rare and noteworthy sight.
The same rains that soaked San Diego, make that all of California, gave Anza-Borrego Desert State Park nearly twice its average yearly rainfall this winter. All this led to an explosion of color. Although this yearâ€™s display is now beyond its peak, I ventured there to check it out.
These are a subset of the images I returned with to shareâ€¦
