This is a scene from a once-in-fifty-years mass bloom of lupine up on Bald Hills Road in Redwood National Park. I was fighting a cold, but my husband drove me up there late one afternoon so that I could see it and get pictures. The location is about an hour from our house. Click to buy it here

Lupin Blooming in Redwood National Park

The word’s gone out and it made the front page of the local paper. There is a rare explosion of lupin bloom up on Bald Hills Road in Redwood National Park. My husband and I took the Jensen Healey out for a spin to go check it out this afternoon. I didn’t know what to expect, but went late in the afternoon hoping for good light. Interspersed amongst the lupin was darker purple larkspur, which added a good contrast of value and hue. Here’s some of the photos I shot:

It was mostly this huge patch by the road, spilling down the slope
