Autumn in the Valley, revisited
November 13, 2008 01:39PM
I was lucky enough to be able to spend a week in the valley at the end of October, for great weather and a fine autumn show. I had posted a couple of photos here during the visit.

If you weren't able to get there for the great fall show, I finally got a gallery of some of the photos I took...certainly nothing like being there, but at least gives you the idea:

comments welcome

I suspect the color is mostly gone now, with the recent storms, but winter's coming, and snow brings in a whole new perspective, so it won't be long!

I've never been there late in the season. Don't think I'll ever shed the vision of thundering waterfalls and raging Merced River. Mist Trail without the mist?

Anyway, great collection of fall photos. It's appreciated.

The color around Smith Station / Groveland Ranger Station on 120 was
pretty incredible on Sunday...

And with all the snow and the warming the waterfalls are spectacular again... plenty of mist on the mist trail...

Everything I know I learned from Chick-on is looking at you!

Panasonic Lumix FZ-50. It's an "ultrazoom" type, but similar to a small DSLR in size and control, with a Leica 35-420mm (equivalent) lens. Thus I don't need to carry or switch lenses for most situations, which makes it a good all-around hiking camera if you want something a bit more capable than the pocket cameras.

The infrareds were done with my old Olympus C2100uz and an infrared filter. One of the few digitals that has enough infrared sensitivity to shoot easily handheld, and an electronic viewfinder so you can see what you're shooting (usually with infrared you can't). While I seldom carry two cameras, it's fun to bring it out now and then for infrareds.
