The flowers seemed to be a little past peak, as shown in the following close-up view. Nonetheless, the sea of blue was spectacularly beautiful.

Tech Tips

I used my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ150 superzoom camera to shoot the landscape photo featured in this blog post. The camera was set for manual focus at the hyperfocal distance for an aperture of f/4, based upon the instructions provided in the excellent video tutorial by Graham Houghton, “Panasonic Lumix FZ camera easier manual focus method — super point-and-shoot tip.”

The color saturation was increased slightly for both photos during post-processing.
