Nice Harriet. Since I like b&w I'm drawn to the IR images. Although, it does irritate me that things are "backwards". Takes me a while when looking at them to get used to what I'm looking at. It's just me, though.

I like #3 and 4. Although, I think 3 would be better if more of the foreground were not in the image. It makes you more drawn to the background with the fields. My home.

Wow, sorry to here about the shoulder but you really shouldn't bring so much on a reasonably long hike.

The images are fantastic, I really don't know if I would have the patience to do this but I do like the results.

Thanks, Ira! I know what you mean about limiting stuff, but it's hard to do. I've been working at it, but every time it seems like I really want what I left behind.

You have to admit, Patty, that the area just south of Bakersfield sure looks different from this vantage point.

Someone had asked me what it would be like to use IR at a beach. This past weekend we were back in Oceanside for a night and I took along the K100 and R72 filter. I'll start a new thread with of the pictures I took, along with some lessons learned and new things tried.

It sure does, Harriet. So many times we've come off the end of the Ridge only to find a hazy valley. Your spot may be a good place to take a break if we fly into LA and get stuck in traffic. Looks like a good vantage point.

And, yes. With all my surgeries and stuff lately I've been trying to limit what I take with me if I go out. And, one of the things I left behind is always what I find I want.

And, I do hope you can get some relief in your shoulder. That must be a pain.

Patty

That spot is a great spot for a hike, but not for a stop when going from LAX to Bakersfield - it's a 2 mile hike in to that spot. On the other hand, I know of another spot that overlooks the San Joaquin Valley that is much more accessible, less than a half mile walk (though where its located is on an unofficial trail along an abandoned dirt road, off of another official dirt road that doesn't really go anywhere). The views from the top of the pass and from the Flying J (now owned by Pilot) aren't all that much unless there's snow (and why would you want to look at snow when you would otherwise not have to???). But it's always pleasant being up in the mountains...
