This is the second year that I have tried to shoot the flowers and missed out by around a week. This seems to make all the difference. Louis and I went with our interns and we did manage to shoot some floral scenes but in general the flowers were over by the time we got there. I vowed that in 2013 I will have the West Coast booked for early September and go further North. It is in fact time already to start planning for 2013’s trip as there are three day hiking trails that one can do around the flowers. This will also prove handy for my Rim of Africa training as I hope to be able to do the next sections this year.
