Hi this is my picture. A few have falsely claimed my picture & won contest with it. I don’t get why people do this but picture went viral and was rapidily spread from Desert USA website when I posted picture.

My writeup on this picture.
God Spilled the Paint One of California Most Spectacular Desert Wildflower Blooms. Mar 2005 Tremblor Range adjacent to Carizzo Plains Nat. Monument.
Featured Best Photo 2005 in http://www.DesertUSA.com and Wildly circulated by email and rumored about. It is also a popular topic for religious websites, forums, and blog posts. The image circulates with various titles, including, “God Spilled the Paint”, “The Day That God Spilled the Paint” and “God’s Paint Spill”. Just Google it I was amazed. The Copyright photo has been widely used legally with proper credit & illegally with improper credit worldwide in books, websites, photo gallery sites, publications, photo contest & in art work.

He will vouch for me.
PS Just took a quick trip to Carizzo & Joshua Tree. Some good blooms but not a superbloom. I hear Death Valley above average. I thinking to go out again to scout wildflowers.
-Happy wildflower hunting,
Thanks for letting us know, Frank. I fixed the attribution. Beautiful picture!
