Calla lily of the valley - This is the most beautiful place I have found while taking pics. This is in a valley off the side of the highway in Big Sur, CA bit of a sketchy hike getting into the valley and it is surrounded by poison oak and stinging neddle. I only fell into the nettle, so all and all not the worst thing ever, better than the poison oak. This valley is about 100 yards long and completely filled with Calla Lily. It was really, really breathtaking. I didn't realize until I was reading up on the calla lily that they are an invasive poisonous species. I had no idea. Anyway, it was a beautiful place one I would highly recommend visiting.

The lighting across the lilies' is quite spectacular! I love the wide perspective of the flowers right in the foreground it really draws you into the image and gives a real sense of being there. Photography wouldn't be half the adventure without a few knocks, bumps, and scratches, I've found my self in a few tricky situations over the last few years.
