It rained for most of the night and finally turned to snow in the wee hours of the morning. I thought it would be a good day for a walk in the woods.
So, I took my camera out in the snow for a short walk up Neff Canyon, taking pictures until my lens fogged up.
Neff Canyon is gradually transitioning from a dissiduous forest with shrub oak and maple to a pine forest. As such, I was able to get several photos of small pine trees covered in snow (Christmas Tress!).
