Eastern Sierra Fall Foliage: My wife and I took a break and drove to Eastern Sierra from 10/8-10/10/2015 to check out fall foliage. Difficulties in booking hotels caused us to stay in June Lake and Bridgeport - a bit further from the actions than we'd like. However, staying in Bridgeport gave us the chance to visit Bodie again and to drive back over the Sonora Pass. In a nutshell, colors seemed both later and the quality of colors in comparing to past-years visits, potentially due to the drought. The good news is there should still be good colors for visitors in the latter half of October. We visited Rock Creek, McGee Creek, June Lake Loop, Parker Lake, Lundy Canyon, Twin Lakes and Sonora Pass.

In late October, I made a solo return to Eastern Sierra, with additional visits to Alabama Hills, Manzanar Historical Site and several more destinations. Hoping the broaden my skills, I tried light painting and black and white compositions.

Supermoon Eclipse over Godlen Gate Bridge- Braved the drive and the crowd to capture this once in a life time event for me. My position was not the best, but reasonable with decent photos. More about what I learned, what I should have done later...
