Photographer's Note

Click on the image to see the larger version.

At the beginning of last week there was an unusually heavy snowfall on the mountains near Los Angeles, turning them white not just at the tips, as usually happens when a storm passes through, but well down the side. Snow fell down to maybe 1200 m (4000 feet) elevation or less, instead of the usual 1800 m (6000 feet) or so. Unfortunately this view was only available for a few hours, and in mid-day light, as clouds covered the mountains by sunset.

On the left side is Mt. Baldy, at 10,064 feet (3,068 m), the highest peak in the San Gabriel Mountains.
