  5. Love the palm tree in those images with the snowy peaks – what crazy weather (but very conducive for amazing shots!).

  6. A most fabulous collection! I especially loved the two opening photos. The way you’ve captured the rain is just lovely.

  7. “Palm.” Wow, that’s superb, Jane. Such an interesting mix of tree, mountains, snow, and clouds. I like the hint of buildings at the bottom, too. My other favorite is “Clearing Storm” because of those little droplets scattered across the view – they change everything. The composition in both of these photos is so good. I like the dark shadows of the trees in the first photo – eucalyptus? It’s nice to see another of your rain-spattered window photos, too, I always like those very much. What a crazy winter for California!

  8. Snowy San Grabriels, that’s something we don’t see too often. And your photos, Jane, really captured their beauty. I was just down there this week, and the beauty of the snow was breathtaking, your photos capture it well. I love the colorful glow of the sun in that first photo, lends a dreamy quality.

  9. wonderful work, Jane! i do love “soaking” – can’t beat a little bit of defocused mystery.

  10. These are so beautiful! I find myself absorbed by them because itโ€™s so strange to seeโ€ฆ. The first one is definitely my favorite, but the storm cleared is breathtaking too.

  11. We’ve been hearing over here about your unusual weather recently, but no one else has made it look quite so stunningly beautiful as you do! Those snowy mountains ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • Hi Sarah, A few months ago, I never imagined we’d be soaked for weeks. When it rains, it pours! ๐Ÿ™‚ So glad you enjoyed my weather images- it’s very unusual to have snow on the foothills. LA was buzzing. Thanks very much! โ˜”๏ธโ„๏ธ

  12. As always fine shots, Jane. It was very touching to see the adulation Joni received in Newport and seeing/hearing her sing was a joy. I was not familiar with Brandi Carlile but kudos to her and all involved for bring Joni “back to life” where she belongs.

    • Thanks so much, Steve. Agree about Joni, and Brandi has been instrumental in her recent resurgence of attention. Very heartwarming. Joni just won the lifetime achievement Gershwin Prize which will be aired March 31. I highly recommend Brandi- I think you will love her music. Look up “Right on Time”. Appreciate your visit here! ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Absolutely stunning photos Jane! Our beautiful state is surviving and thriving. My kids just made it down the mountain in Mammoth as the next storm moves in. We just got in a few days ago. So happy to see the snow and the rain.

  23. Not what you expect in SoCal! I used to love our February trips to California, but the only snow experienced was in Yosemite!

  26. These are gorgeous photos Jane. I love snow-capped mountains and vistas. Hopefully, the weather wasn’t too disruptive where you live.

    • Thanks so much, Brad. It was fun to see and exciting to have happen. We are so starved for moisture, itโ€™s a pleasure. The higher elevations are really stressed though, with people buried in their homes. Glad you enjoyed the snowy San Gabriels!

  30. Great captures of the recent snow event, Jane! The San Gabriels offer such a scenic backdrop when dusted with snow. I love the slightly out of focus blocks of color in ‘SoCal Soaking.’ It reminds me of a French painting of the early 20th century. Beautiful!
