A view looking east as a winter storm leaves a blanket of white light in its wake.

Wow Scott, this is just stunning. The blue-white tones, the branches looking like lace. Sheer beauty.

I know how badly you need the water and I guess I haven't seen enough winter photos from up there to know if this was a heavier snow year in the high Sierras.
I love the distant detail in this one.

@Judy: Dear Judy, This photograph is from the coastal range of mountains in the San Francisco Bay Area - which typically gets snow at these elevations 2 to 3 times a year. We have had very good rain/snow this month in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and Norther California in general. We have a good storm coming in this weekend which, if all goes well, our rainfall for the year will be at normal - very good news!!
