Spring is Back…The Trillium have Arrived!

Trillium Grouping Trillium 2014 Spring Trillium Young Trillium

The rains have stopped here for a bit and my shop work for the day was done so I headed up to the Timber Ridge area of Sea Ranch to see if there were any spring wildflowers.  I love the woods after the rain and today didn’t disappoint and neither did the wildflowers, namely the Trillium.  They were a little earlier than last year as I first posted their arrival in early April.  These were still dripping wet from the prior rains and were also still pretty small.  I still had my 14-24mm lens on but managed to get some nice specimen shots anyway. 

The first image shows a nice little grouping of young Trillium at the base of a redwood tree.  The remaining images were nice little specimens that were located along a small rise which made it easier to get low enough to shoot them (and get back up again).

This was a nice little surprise, and I’ll have to keep following up on their growth progress and their color changes as they age.  Hopefully the Calypso Orchids will be arriving soon as well.  Spring and summer can’t be too far behind.



Equipment:  Nikon D3s; Nikkor 14 – 24mm f2.8 lens.

    Simply beautiful. I know you love this time of year. I don’t think I’ve seen a calypso orchid and look forward to it.
