Desert Brittlebush

With another small storm coming in I decided to take a drive out to the desert to see what's left of the wildflower bloom. I also wanted to break in my newest Hielman backpacker pastel box.

Right now the bright yellow brittlebush is everywhere. In fact, it was so evident that I decided that, like fall foliage, it might be too much to try and capture it (see photo below).

So, I found a lone little group of flowers hiding in the rocks. I’m always amazed at the life you can find in the desert.

What a great place to set up. That's the Hielman box and easel on my carbon fiber tripod. Wonderful setup!


Lots of Yellow!
