If you’re curious, scan some past entries from last autumn (October-December or so) to see photos I took looking up at the Maycamas Ridge, when it had been freshly burned (again) by the Glass Fire last year. This fresh spring layer of grass is the seasonal green of late wet season. Most of what you see here was charred by the Glass Fire last year.
Found a few more lovely photos from my visit down to city in January, so you’ll see those in the mix these next few weeks – no, the trees are not currently quite this bare in SF. When I’m down there later in May, maybe I’ll remember to try the same angle and tree, to see where the sun rises near mid-year, and how much the leaves block the view to the east bay :-).
Yep, they’re still out there. I’m just not quite so interested in photographing them, but every now and then one just feels the urge…
