As a nature photographer, this is one of the most anxious times of the year. Will it rain enough to bring the spring wildflowers and will the storms occur at opportune times to give us dramatic clouds at sunset. This week we got some rain, but the photographic opportunities were hit and miss. Even though we haven’t received that much rainfall so far, things have really started to green up and some flowers are already starting to appear if you know where to look.
