It seems that every hibiscus tree is in bloom right now in San Diego. Yellow, orange, pink, or red hibiscus flowers are everywhere I look. Here are a few hibiscus blooms to brighten your Friday.

I really like bright yellow hibiscus flowers but I think they look even nicer with a red center.

This last one is probably my favorite, with a bright purple center and a yellow border.

I took these photos of hibiscus flowers a few months ago at the end of spring. Now that I’m slowly going through the hundreds of pictures on my camera’s SD cards, I get to dig up a few older photos. I love photographing hibiscus blooms because they are so colorful but it can be a challenge to get them in the right angle and light. Most of the time, the photos I take of them are worthless, and sometimes I’m lucky.

Here’s a selection of pink hibiscus, pink and white hibiscus, and purple and light yellow hibiscus flowers. The first shot is the whole flower and the second shot is a close-up. I hope you enjoy these!
