And there's still snow on the trees in the valley as of 10:30 AM this morning, but it's melting fast!

Was really hard this morning for me to get up at much too chilly and dark 5am then totally unprepared pack up rapidly then drive off to the Sierra from San Jose. But there was no denying a 2500 foot snow level does not occur in early November when dogwood are still in fall color but once every 5 to 10 years. Thought about YV but the best dogwood under giant sequoia are at Calaveras Big Trees State Park which is just 155 miles away so was on the road at 6:07am and reached there 3 hours later. Second car in the lot. 6 to 10 inches of fresh fluffy snow consolidated down to shin depth, no wind, perfect diffuse clouds above. Exposed 10 sheets of Provia 100F. An SX130 pic of one of my Pacific dogwood subjects:

My film came back from development so made a couple crude scans of the 4x5 transparencies. Disappointedly the 4x5 exposure of the above digital camera pic was about 2/3 stop too bright and worse the camera was moving. But the most important landscape of my 10 exposures was fine so I'm happy. The below images are on my Gallery B sub-page:

This scene would have been better had I reached there an hour before sun started poking through the canopy and melting off snow. The red leaf trees are Pacific dogwood while the yellow leaves are on black oak.

Alas, mother nature waits for no one.

Excellent pictures nevertheless, IMHO.
