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.

  1. It’s a great lens! Once again, you have done credit to your gear….It’s a lovely image…I was delighted to see you captured this in Griffith Park.. I actually thought it might have come from the high desert…

  2. Nature’s Child: Thanks for liking my image “Trail to Dante’s Peak”. If you make it to the top of Dante’s Peak, you will be rewarded with views of the Pacific Ocean, Century City, Downtown Los Angeles, the City of Glendale, and a birds eye view of the Griffith Park Observatory.
