This winter’s heavy rains brought havoc to parts of California, but to a photographer they were a godsend. I specialize in the shores and morros of the Central Coast and for years I’ve wanted to capture the special glowing green of our hills during the rainy season. So between rainy days I climbed to the top of Cerro San Luis and looked north to find Bishop Peak and a line of Morros basking in sharp, clear  winter light, with a dramatic sky in the background! But I wanted more! So trips to Moretti Canyon, Edna Valley and  San Simeon Creek produced more wonderful images of golden-green hills.

Then there was the Carrizo Plain National Monument, which this spring exploded with yellow and blue flowers thanks to the rains. But even more spectacular were the Temblor Mountains that parallel the plain on its eastern border. Dramatic in their own right, the yellow and orange flowers made them seem other-worldly, like something from a fantasy movie. Wow!
