Back in 2009 my friend and I used to drive to Ventura to walk from a parking lot near the Ventura Fairground area to Emma Woods State Beach and then back. I always had my camera with me and, on this particular morning, I saw this Jimson Weed flower backlit by the sun. At the time I had the Canon S3 IS 12x Optical Zoom camera with a vari-angle LCD display so I didn’t have to get on my hands and knees for this shot.
