Default winter comes to Los Angeles

Every couple of years, we get a cold storm that brings snow very close to the city. I know this is nothing compared to most everyone else in other parts, but we get very excited, living in a place where the average daytime temperature in the winter is around 60F (16C)!

This was the view from my backyard this morning, looking at Mt. Lukens which is the highest point within the city of Los Angeles, at 5000' (1500m). Sadly, it mostly melted away by the end of the day.

Lovely Saly and very special for LA! We seldom get snow in Western Australia except in the Stirling Ranges which are 300km or so from us. I would have been very excited too.

Lovely shot - what a great view! We certainly don't get snow around these parts.

Thank you everyone! We live on the very northern border of Los Angeles, up against the Angeles National Forest. Unfortunately, it's only pretty like this about two months out of the year. The rest of the time, it's very dry and brown. Couple of years ago when we had the massive Station Fire, we watched the fire line come over that tall mountain. Pretty scary sight.

Ho-hum snow (just kidding), we get our fair share in Ohio. I would love to see what a crop would look like from #1 with just the mountain top and that blue sky.

Like this? This is actually a crop of a shot that I had zoomed in a bit more than #1. Keep in mind, this peak is about 3 miles away, no teleconverter. Now that I look at it this way, I'm pretty impressed with this little lens!
