Blossoms on a snowy morning


Vineyard replanting

We took a little road trip down south this past weekend. We spent most of our time in Napa but headed out one morning for a walk in Yountville.

Today’s photo is from a little over five years ago. This was in my pre-RAW days or it could be better.

Ashland’s Red Queen Trail

Red Queen Trail (approaching the intersection with Road 2060, AKA Ashland Loop Road)

There’s a new trail in town. The Red Queen has been built over the past few weeks and is now open and ready for foot traffic. The trail runs from a couple intersections with Bandersnatch or Jub Jub up to the intersection of Caterpillar crossing the Ashland Loop Road. There aren’t any significant view or overlook areas, but it is a nice trail in the watershed without any bikes.

One way to get there is to park near the water tank where Terrace and Ashland Loop intersect. Just past the water tank on Ashland Loop an unmarked trail begins going uphill. This turns into Red Queen (and is marked) for a bit, before becoming Bandersnatch, and then reverting to Red Queen (again marked as Red Queen). If you are on Caterpillar and want to go down Red Queen look for the unmarked trails heading toward Reeder Reservoir on the left side of Ashland Loop as you are heading down. The left one is for bikes (Jabberwocky) and the right one (not marked as Red Queen but with an indication that is only for walkers and horses) is Red Queen.

The pink flowers in my front yard are several days gone now. These white ones in the backyard seem to have a longer life span, although many have fallen this week. I took this photo a week ago. As Ashland’s cherry blossom season ends, Japan’s is just beginning.

I rather like the sun stars my Nikkor 20mm f/1.8g AF-S lens produces at f/16.

Pink snow

The blossoms are all gone now, but last week (during a shower) they looked like they do in today’s photo.

Ten years ago this tree looked like this.

Now the little girl that was under that tree in 2005 drives the blossom-covered car pictured under this same tree.

Keeping it all in focus

Focus stacked Mount McLoughlin and wildflowers from Lower Table Rock

I tried another focus stack from a couple of photos I took this past weekend on Lower Table Rock. The results are better than my first attempt on Upper Table Rock earlier this year.
