Desert landscape with windmills and Mt. San Jacinto

Desert in Bloom

Here are a series of pictures playing with desert wildflowers,  landscapes, scale and observation. The flowers are quite small, the dandelions were the largest, so it was difficult to get a viewpoint that has both the flower and the overall sense of the desert that I wanted, to show the flowers as a frail and fleeting bit of color in a harsh environment.

These two are both taken with the same stand of dandelions at approximately the lower right rule of thirds intersection point:

These flowers are shown first looking down from above, neither is particularly obvious in the shot of the desert floor. But they are pretty and colorful when I put the camera on the ground beside them.

This blue flower was more noticeable from a distance. I deliberately did not try to exclude the piece of debris as the desert is full of it after being used as an informal garbage dump for so long.
