Spring Has Sprung
OK, enough Trains, Planes and Automobiles for a while! I spent some time shooting the Flower Fields in Carlsbad. This time of year it is just overflowing with acres of color!
Carlsbad is a coastal resort city lying along the Pacific Ocean in San Diego’s North County region of Southern California. For over sixty years, the rolling hills of Carlsbad have been a spectacular and coordinated display of natural color and beauty. The nearly fifty acres of Giant Tecolote Ranunculus flowers that make up The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch are in a full bloom for approximately six to eight weeks each year – from early March through early May – literally bringing the famous fields back to life. This annual burst of color, which has become part of the area’s local heritage, is also one of nature’s official ways of announcing the arrival of spring. www.kerstenbeck.com
