Vacation part 4

Here are some of the photos I took of botanicals in CA. Some really unusual plants there! Don't forget to click on the photo to enlarge it!

Anyone know what kind of tree this is with thorns on the bark?

And these amazing, enormous orange flowers are blooms in a tree! I had never seen anything like this. A tree covered in these? Gorgeous!

These peach bell shaped flowers (don't know the real name) smell so sweet when you walk by them, especially late in the evening.

Here are a few misc. photos I snapped:

Love the patterns in the sand. Like sand trees!

Can you even believe this sunset?

Your photos are pieces of art - you really captured the beauty of nature in these photos. You certainly have mastered your new camera.

Wow, your close-up photos are amazing, especially the texture ones. Seeing these beautiful summer-photos are a bit painful, though. We´ve got snow... and I was still waiting for summer...
