I spent hours photographing these pretty coastal blooms with my macro lens (and no tripod!) on top of a windy Bodega head, captivated by their abundantly gorgeous array of pastel candy shades, like the tangy-sweet salt water taffy we gorged ourselves on. Up close they look like perfect wedding bouquets. Though I have searched I haven’t been able to locate their name, so I would love if someone could tell me what they are called.

I want to know, too! Those colors are so pretty. I’m glad you could do it without a tripod. I can’t bring myself to use one, ever. 😉
Absolutely beautiful – love the color palette! 🙂
thank you! x
I think it might be Eriogonum latifolium (coast buckwheat)…? beautiful shots!
Hi Cath – I just googled it and that’s exactly it! Thanks so much for solving the mystery for me 🙂
Ah great! Hooray!
thank you Anette! x
