New Year’s Day Photographs

There was no reason for it. There wasn’t even a badly-thought-out policy. But the photographs from New Year’s Day languished unattended in a directory in my computer for a dozen days.

I went on two hikes that day; on Mount Rubidoux around sunrise, and in Sycamore Canyon in the afternoon. The first four photos are views from Mount Rubidoux.

The last two are western views from Sycamore Canyon. The canyon area provides a 200 degree panorama that includes Mount San Gorgonio in the San Bernardino Mountains to the north, Mount Rubidoux and Mount Baldy in the Angeles Mountains to the west, and the Santa Ana River valley and the Cleveland National Forest to the south. On a good day (a day with interesting cloud formations), there are multiple landscape scenes to photograph.
