North Lake is located close to Bishop, CA. It is one of the most popular places among photographers in the fall when the aspen turn bright gold and small shrubs turn orange. The road from the highway into the lake area is a two mile, one way, steep (with no barriers) scary ride!! We visited North Lake in May, well before the aspen even leafed out. We returned often in the fall to check on the trees as they slowly progress to their ‘peak color’. The best day of all . . . well it rained!! Enjoy this collection of our many trips.
Rockport sits right on the coast of Texas and is sometimes considered part of the San Pedro Island winter escape destination for snow birders. It has scenic fishing piers, abundant birdlife, great beaches. It was also ground zero for Hurricane Harvey!! My brother is staying at an RV park not far from the beach. He has been there for several months and was quickly welcomed into the community and put to use as the resident photographer. When the city had its annual Sea Fair, the Chamber of Commerce asked him to photograph as much of it as he could. He spend three days waking around the venue with two cameras, several lens and a huge flash. Here are some of the photographs he took of the activities.
A very special thanks to Steve for sharing.
The meadow is located along a dirt road off Highway 120 which goes along Mono Lake. It is a very popular fall foliage location, but more importantly it is a year-round destination for bikers, hikers, snowshoe hiking, campers and equestrian riders. There is a 20 mile loop which is used by bikers in the summer.
We heard about this fall color spot just as it peaked. There is a road to the summit but it requires a 4 wheel drive. Tom explored the road leading to the summit but we decided we had plenty to photograph in the meadow. While the hill was impressive, I felt the real opportunity was in getting some more practice in pano-photography!
