Lilac trees in bloom in Southern California

Here are some photos of lilac trees in bloom at Dos Picos County Park, Ramona, California. I took these photos in the spring, on a cloudy day, which made for great lighting effects.

This photo below is my favorite. I have never seen grass with such a bright, light shade of green. It seemed so surreal, I knew I had to take a picture of it. I bet that grass turned dry and yellow a few weeks later, but natural green grass is such an uncommon sight in San Diego, this was a treat.

Ramona lilacs have smaller flowers than regular lilac trees and they don’t smell anything (the disappointing part) but they’re still very beautiful.

Here’s the whole picture, with the lush green grass in the front and the many lilac trees in the back.

The Enchanted Forest

I took this photo of the forest while walking in Dos Picos County Park, Ramona, California. The light and the sight were just right I knew I had to snap a photo of it. This enchanted forest looks like it popped right out of a fairy tale.
