After seeing +Willie Huang beautiful image "Purple Magic" I knew I had to make a trip out to Folsom Lake. It was windy, not a cloud in the sky and from what I had heard - the lupine were past their prime. I knew if I didn't go, I would kick myself for the next 5-10 years waiting for another super bloom. Needless to say, the photography gods smiled upon me last night. Our first colorful sunset in weeks, not a hint of wind and the lupine (while faded somewhat) were still in pretty good shape.
