As a professional photographer, I recently got up close and personal with a wildflower superbloom.

Record rainfall in California has led to massive numbers of wildflowers blanketing hillsides.

California Golden Poppies are some of the most dramatic flowers I've seen.

Their deep orange color makes hillsides look like they're part of a painted canvas

Vetch and lupine flowers contribute their own brilliant purple hues to superblooms.

Superblooms are an amazing thing to witness! Swipe up for more photos of the stunning superbloom I captured.
