Morning Fog

Yolo Basin

It seems that morning fog is less common in our valley now than it used to be. Although it’s a hazard for driving, it also brings a nice change of scene for photography. It’s been foggy here lately after the rain several days ago. These were all taken in the Yolo Basin using the Light L16.

Being a managed wetland, this place is plumbed for holding and releasing water in each of the ponds and ditches. Tiny differences in elevation allow water to flow by gravity through gates and culverts as needed. Yolo BasinYolo Basin

This thing is a drain through which water flows into the culverts seen in the preceding photo. It could also be an acoustic art installation, with little sloshes of multiple wavelengths flowing into the drain. Listen (44 sec. audio):

Ice on Delaney Creek

Tuolumne Meadows

One of my favorite short day hikes in Tuolumne Meadows is from Soda Springs and Parsons Memorial Lodge (above) down the Pacific Crest Trail to Delaney Creek, then out into the meadows, and back along the river. In late October, there were few visitors in this area, and lots of thin ice in shaded areas along the creek.
