Tall Tales From The Field

Wintry Owens Valley

In the middle of my visit to Death Valley last week, I made a side trip through California’s Owens Valley.  The snow level was much lower than in previous years as California has been hit with numerous storms this winter. Unfortunately, low clouds obscured the highest peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

    • Thanks Peggy. Yeah, that last one was interesting. I noticed that look in the rear view mirror of my vehicle on the way back to Death Valley

  3. Love the look of the snow, especially in the monochrome images. Michael. Fitting for Ansel Adams’ birthday today.

    • Thanks Jane. I was thinking of Ansel when I converted that image to monochrome. He spent a lot of time in Owens Valley
