Since my local national forest is still closed, we took a drive over to the next one (which is still open). I wanted to get pictures of a local lake, but it had disappeared. So I had to find some other topic. This board has changed my way of thinking about things - when I saw the fog the first thing I thought about Rick's pictures. I haven't done as well (different terrain) but thought this one was interesting. Taken with the DA 50-200 lens.

We were up on a dirt road in the Angeles National Forest, so things aren't quite like they are in the city. Thought "Jaws" was an appropriate name for this photo (it's actually part of a van).

One more - when we got up to the top of the mountain we found some oaks that were just changing. This is the closest it looks like we'll get to autumn color (sigh!).

Hey Mtngal,

I like that first one. It suggests the change of elevation that is so absent here in FL yet is still somewhat mysterious. That looks like it would have been a good place to just set up and capture the fog as it changed. Nice shot.

Really like that first one. Is it fog or spray from a waterfall?? LOL

I wish it were spray from a waterfall - then I might have been able to see Pyramid Lake (a water reservoir), what I had set out to photograph.

The spot is very rugged terrain - a fun spot to photograph in the spring if there's a decent wildflower display. It's normally a little-used section of the Angeles NF. However, this past weekend was deer hunting opening weekend and the forest around us is still closed. I think everyone who had tags for our area was over there - I've never seen so much traffic.

Lovely pictures and an interesting terrain. The highest mountain somewhat nearby my place is 150 m/500 ft high. Impressing?

Well everything is relative Kjell. The highest point in penisular Florida is 298 feet above sea level and someone had the audacity to call it "Iron Mountain." They do have a neat tower and botanical garden there though, maybe I should run up with the camera some weekend soon.

LOL! Yes, it is all relative. They call one area near here the "Gorman Hills" because they look like hills from the freeway. However, hills are normally 2,000 feet or below elevation-wise (as I recall from a science class taken well over 30 years ago), and these "hills" are probably over 5,000 feet elevation (freeway is around 4,000 feet elevation).
