Wildflowers. Gold Country. Road Trip. Have camera, will adventure… The night before we listened to the song Jackson by Johnny Cash & June Carter. My wife saw a picture on Gold Country Photographers. It was decided. We took our youngest daughter on a little road trip to Jackson to do a little wildflower photography, and adventure of course. I love it when a plan comes together, and this one came together nicely. Welcome to Electra Rd.
With the Mokelumne river on one side, and hillsides covered in wildflowers on the other, it was a pretty amazing little spot. You can never go wrong with a river/wildflower combination.
Poppies, poppies, everywhere! All along the road were huge patches of poppies, which is never a bad thing. Large fields, rolling hills, all covered in beautiful wildflowers.
And of course a setting as beautiful as this makes for a great background a few portraits, and I happened to be lucky enough to have had a pair of beautiful subjects along for the adventure.
Bottom line, the answer to adventure is always yes. Anytime, anywhere. Never pass up a chance to explore. You never know where you’ll end up, or what you’ll see, and you just might be lucky enough to capture something beautiful.
