    A short hike at St Joseph's Hill Open Space Preserve, Los Gatos, California. The manzanita forest is blooming, one of the largest in SF bay area. Vivitar 28mm f/2.0 Close Focus on NEX 5N.

    Nice set. I hiked the Santa Anita mountains about a year ago. I saw these trees all over that mountain, mostly higher up, and never knew what they were called.

    Nice set. The first one might be nice in black and white, also.
