Flowers from Quarry Lakes Regional Park (Part 2)

It's spring again and flowers are starting to bloom. :) Today I have 13 pictures of flowers from Quarry Lakes Regional Park located in Fremont/Union City, CA. Please enjoy. They are pretty! I will try to get the names of the flowers, but as you guys know, I am no flower expert. No promises. If I got the wrong name, please point it out in the comments.

As you guys can see I stopped watermarking all my photos. I only do it on some of them from now on. However, this doesn't mean you can steal credit for the pictures. I did that to improve your enjoyment and the viewing of my photos.

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing.

Anyways, before you continue, I would like to tell you about a compact 1080p HD camcorder made by Sony. The Sony MHS-FS3 3D Bloggie Touch Camera has a built-in 2.4" glasses-free 3D display and can shoot up to 4 hours of HD video by recording it into it's 8GB internal memory. Great for all your outdoor photography needs! It will also take 3D pictures. You can find out more details here.

Cow parsnip (Heracleum lanatum)

Paintbrush (Castilleja)

Not sure what flower this is.

The flower looks really pretty! I think it's the best picture I've taken. :)

Anyways guys. I don't have anymore photos in my library. :( Hopefully I'll be able to take more for next time. :) Stay tuned!

Sanyo Eneloop Rechargeable Battery Review


The Sanyo Eneloop Rechargeable Battery is the battery I use in my DSLR's external camera flash. Unlike other batteries, this battery have a very strong long lasting charge. It is great for power all your battery powered electronic devices that uses AA or AAA batteries. The battery charge will stay for at least a year, unlike other rechargeables which will pretty much be useless in a year.

My external camera flash works great with this! It will power many many flashes, which proves it is very strong. I didn't regret my purchase yet! It is great! I can't believe I didn't use this sooner. All those money I wasted on the other brands that doesn't even work. If you need rechargeable batteries, I suggest you go get the Sanyo Eneloop Rechargeable Battery. This is great for DSLR's external flashes, your Wii remotes, flashlights, or other products that drains your batteries quickly! So go get yours now!

Field chickweed (Cerastium arvense)

(Did not find a name for this one)

Sorry, very bad with names. Again... Not sure. If you know please tell me. :(

Great deals on camera equipment!


Bermuda buttercup (Oxalis pes-caprae)

Could not find a name. :\ 

What I do with these is that I go onto other people's pages of Bay Area flowers and try to match my picture with theirs' to get a name. I am not very good at doing that. XD So I'm sorry about me not knowing the names. Still, please enjoy my beautiful looking pictures.

I'm predicting another 13 pictures for the next post. I may take more. Not sure yet. If I don't take more, there will be 13 more flower pictures next time. :)
