Trail to Dante’s Peak
This capture of blue wildflowers on a boulder strewn, brambly hillside was made on the trail to Dante’s Peak, Griffith Park, Los Angeles, California on 3/17/2016. There was zero wind from 6:00 am to 8:00 am, perfect for wildflower photography and for testing my new Nikon AF-S Nikkor 85mm f/1.8G lens. This was the first capture I made with this lens.
