Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve
A couple of weekends ago, we all went out again in the search for wildflowers. Apparently, I picked the worst year to start this search as the drought has really taken a toll on the flowers. Nonetheless, our search took us to yet another beautiful place in the Bay Area, Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve.
This old coal mine is open for visitors and it's pretty cool, but what really captured my eye was the entrance to the preserve. Next to the road leading to the preserve were beautiful fields of yellow flowers (mustard?) and really cool old barns and farmhouses. Then, at the entrance, where the rangers live, there was a really fun old truck that made for a great shot.
Check out these photos and I hope you'll like them. For more fun photos, visit my Etsy store or go to my website.
I'm flying to Lima, Peru this Monday to introduce my little one to my family. While there, I'm hoping to take some good shots of La Ciudad de los Reyes (City of Kings). Stay tuned!
