Wonderful photograph and great subjects. I want to lie down amongst the daisies. I want to pick the lupines. There is probably a law against that, as there should be. People like me could wreck a whole landscape. Oh, by the way, did I say this yet? Wonderful photographs!

Sweet, sweet, sweet.

I state the obvious that this is a remarkable collection of landscape images I simply dead on landscapes.

Great compositions and colors - I suspect you ratched up the saturation.

The valley one is just stunning.

Everyone is Carnegie Hall should be clapping seeing this exquisite post. That too would be noisy.

Thanks, always, for all your support and observations......chow.

Are lupines similar to Texas bluebonnets? Just wondering...and wandering in these enchanting detours from the daily (noisy) grind.
