On rare years when the conditions are right in the arid landscape of the Badlands, in the American West, wildflowers burst into a display of colour for just a few days.
The vegetation in the region has adapted to the climate, with just a small amount of moisture the desert can become coloured with sweeping fields of Scorpion Weed, Beeplant and the flowers of the Pincushion Cacti. These blooms can be very short-lived to conserve moisture.
Photographs by Guy Tal
As has become my personal tradition, July 4th is the day I jump on my bike and ride around Orlando looking for interesting stuff to photograph. There is little traffic, so it makes it possible to attempt to photograph places in the city which would be more difficult to access on other days. And for me nothing feels more free than riding around taking pictures. The pursuit of happiness at it is finest.
Happy Independence Day!
