Dahlia Dell




I love Golden Gate Park. I’ve spent countless hours here: running, biking, walking, just hanging out… I never get tired of it. And one of my favorite seasonal treats they offer is its beautiful Dahlia Dell, the almost hidden sister next to the grand Conservatory of Flowers. Dahlia’s are great to explore up close and personal. And the best time to go is in early Autumn, late September/early October (which is when these photos were taken).

The closer you get, the more there is to see.


I love the architecture of the petals…



…and vivid colors



And closer still, you enter dreamland. Sometimes soft…



…sometimes joyful…

…always memorable.

    Some lovely shots here Denise. I especially like the last one. Makes me close my eyes and imagine I’m holding the flower, raising it to my nose, and slowly and deeply inhaling it’s scent.
    Great shots.
