Anza-Borrego Super Bloom

This year’s unusually rainy winter in California brought the state out of a five-year drought and as a result, we saw “super blooms” of desert flowers across the state. My buddy Curtis and I jumped at the chance for an off-the-grid camping trip to one of the hot spots. The pictures below were taken at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park with my Canon DSLR and my 120 format Rolleiflex loaded with Fuji Velvia reversal film.
