I was born and raised in a small town in far Northern California. I never really appreciated the area until I moved away. This was taken from an area just south of Mc Cloud where I lived.
Mt Shasta is a ‘mystical’ mountain. Some of the lore I’m sure comes from the lenticular clouds that form around it. Alien space craft coming in for a landing.
Ich bin in einer kleinen Stadt in Nordkalifornien geboren und aufgewachsen. Ich habe die Gegend nie wirklich geschätzt, bis ich weggezogen bin. Dies wurde aus einem Gebiet südlich von Mc Cloud, wo ich lebte, genommen.
Mt Shasta ist ein "mystischer" Berg. Ein Teil der Überlieferung stammt sicher aus den linsenförmigen Wolken, die sich darum bilden. Ausländisches Raumfahrzeug, das für eine Landung hereinkommt.
There was a lot of water in Yosemite when Friedhelm, Dorothy (she posts on Friday) went up last week.
Tamarack Creek is part of the Cascades which is usually dry in the summer. Not so much right now.
Friedhelm and I went to the Big Trees last week. That is we went to Sequoia National Park which is near Yosemite.
The weather was mixed most of the day but for a brief period these wonderful clouds floated by.
Not long after I took this it began to snow, since we had other commitments it was a good time to head down the hill.
Sorry for the late post. I forgot and spent the day in another winter wonderland, Sequoia National Park and the Big Trees.
This was of course taken in one of the most beautiful places on earth, Yosemite. My only problem was which one to post.
I didn’t take many Almond Blossom photos this year.
The clouds after the storm inspired me to go out a shoot a few. I actually took this one standing on the roof of my old Ford Ranger. Glad I haven’t gained too much weight.
Went to the coast yesterday. At the end I was treated to a pretty good sunset at Asilomar, Ca.Enjoy and go photograph something.
Friedhelm and I went to Yosemite the other day.
This was taken just as the sun was setting. The valley was in shadow but El Capitan had a nice fog hat. Almost a beret.
It’s been pretty foggy around here. I went to the Merced Wildlife Refuge the other day. The fog and leafless trees added a spooky feeling to the place.
Have a good weekend. Dave
I went to the San Luis National Wildlife Refuge the other day to try out my new ‘walk around’ camera, a Sony a6000. I was very disappointed at the number of birds and wildlife I saw. It is a large refuge and I literally saw only about a dozen geese and comparatively few other fowl. This great egret was one of three and very patient. I actually wanted to get a photo of him taking off but he just stood there and stared at me.
This was taken on my vacation to Northern California this summer…
This is Lassen Peak reflected in Manzanita Lake. I definitely didn’t spend enough time and hope to go back again soon.
