Changing Seasons
Photo By Bruce Wendler

  • Title: Changing Seasons
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: San Joaquin Valley
  • Nearest Town: Grapevine
  • Brief Directions: Highway 5 North of Los Angeles goes over the Tejon Pass after about an hour drive. Sometimes they close the road in a storm, but be patient. Getting Oak Trees covered with snow is great photography fun, then when the road re-opens get down the grapevine to see the hills partially covered with snow.
  • Notes: Kalidascope conditions can exist where every way one looks is a shot. Don't be fooled, consentrate on what makes the scene special and look for what amplifies the effect.
  • Best Season: Spring
  • Description: Driving on highway 5 into the San Joaquin Valley is a large drop from the Tehachapi Mountains. Storms in the early spring challenge the greening hills as they drop snow that will not last more than a day. The old oak trees provide great contrast at a detailed level while the grand scale belongs to the clouds and green hills.
  • Gear: Olympus E510 on Silk Tripod

    Thank you Alena, appreciate your comments as always! This is one of my favorite places, with such amazing geology. Someone also pointed out the repeating triangular shapes, which is probably also...
