Every year for a few weeks the Flower Fields, 50 acres of rununculus (with occasional poppies snuck in for good measure) opens its doors to visitors. Some of which trample, the flowers, by the way, including some folks throwing blankets over the flowers and putting their babies on them to take pictures -- really? I, being a rule follower, obtained a photography permit and furthermore stepped on zero flowers. No flowers were harmed in the making of these photos. I got some more practice with a macro lens (shit, it's hard, I need a tutorial, those lenses are confusing). I experimented.
I recommend looking at the photos in slideshow, but if you don't want to do that, here they are.
