Lupines are blanketing the areas around Folsom Lake. Here are a few images from a morning visit. All pics/panoramas taken with E-PL7/Lumix 20 1.7 II combo. It was frustrating to watch people trample wildflowers for their dumb selfies and/or kid portraits as well as 'professional' photogs doing model shoots and dragging all their gear on the flowers.

A very nice series of lupines and landscape. I know what you mean about insensitive people tromping through delicate areas. Unfortunately, some folks only are out for themselves.

Dennis Moore, Dennis Moore, riding through the night...

And yes, it disgusts me to see people walk all over nature without care or for selfish motives. We don't own the planet and we are not above any other species.

Wow, so many! That's pretty impressive. A shame though, that people once again are so insensitive with their actions, it happens so often in so many places. It's also a shame that parents don't set a good example for their children.

Very beautiful pictures indeed. It breaks my heart the default state of humanity, and it all starts with not setting a good example and instead of doing stuff on self interest only, no thought for consequences.
While it’s impossible to be in nature without some life or damage sacrificed for wildlife, animal or plant, no one should go out of their way to damage or destroy beauty to spare themselves a few seconds and a bit of extra effort to be careful.
“What you do for yourself does with you, what you do for others live’s on forever” ... be it animals, plants or other people.
Amazing photos, but I was expecting this thread to be a complaint about the number of posts from @L0n3Gr3yW0lf ;)
Wait ... wasn’t that back in the late 2000s when data was so precious that looking at pictures online turned everyone into Gollum?
... I just throwing pretty pictures out there (*makes puppy eyes*):

Hi Ovidio,
I was referring to your duplicated post mate. :laugh:
I'm alway happy to see your photos, no matter how many you show. :thumbup:
Sorry, ma bad ... I didn't notice the post was duplicated, shady 3G connection off iPhone through Chrome browser ... I swear I am blaming it on tech :p

May I just make one point as I noticed this is the 2nd time you spelled it this way, my full name is Ovidiu ... I only mention this because I have been tortured for the past 4 1/2 years of people spelling my name every single way but mine ... though I did love the one when it was said Obi (my brain was like:)

Hi Ovidiu,
my apologies.
I know how to spell your name but the damned spellchecker alters it every time, even though I correct it several times during a post.
My surname is invariably misspelt and and I know how annoying it can be, probably even more so with a Christian name, especially when that leads to mispronunciation also.
I promise to be even more careful in future.

Anyway, I think we should get back on track and let people carry on enthusing about the flowers and complaining of human nature trampling over mother nature. :flowers_2:
