The Sierra from Cerro Alto near Morro Bay, California, February 27, 2011
Jill, Kathleen, and I went for a beautiful, cold (for California) hike up Cerro Alto the last Sunday in February. It was one of those very rare days where the "valley fog" towards Fresno was tamped down by the temperature inversion. I believe that's Chalk Mountain in my home town of Atascadero. This is when I wished I had that 500mm telephoto L lens , but alas, this shot isn't bad thanks to Lightroom.
300mm f/7.1 1/640 ISO 100
