Bay Area snow day: Lick Observatory



Taken on February 5, 2019 after a night of snow on the entire (entire!) Diablo range. Taken from Maisie's Peak in the Fremont Older Space Preserve. My only lens on hand goes up to 140 mm, so this is about 1/25th of the entire image, cropped for emphasis. Visibility was really good that day, and it was really cold!

This photo was taken on 12/28/2018 at the top of the Snow Creek trail switchbacks. I used a 35mm camera, developed it in my school darkroom, made an 8x10 print and scanned it.
