I have seen snow in Squaw Valley before, but never for a full week when even getting to the nearest restaurant was a struggle! It has been snowing ever since and there will be lots of spring skiing this year! My safe haven since 1993!
Sometimes, technical mistakes can produce rather amusing results!
This photo was taken on a cold winter day and I had put my neutral density filter between my teeth while I changed my lens. It was getting dark, so it completely escaped me that the filter was now all fogged up!
I am not sure what happened with this one – probably a very dirty lens!
Fall used to make me sad. Being Scandinavian, I could not bear to lose the sunshine and the long days. Now that I have lived in California for almost 20 years where the weather seems to get warmer every year, I treasure the cooler temperatures and the many photo ops!
I went to my beloved Lake Tahoe a couple of weeks ago where the colors where just beginning to turn. How can these warm colors not put a smile on your face!?
The California drought has not been kind to our lakes and rivers, but there is hope! These two photos were taken about a year apart in the same spot.
