A recent very cold Alaskan-Canadian cold front brought very cold temperatures and low snow levels to the San Francisco Bay Area. A nice sight to see the world with a fresh coat of paint!

Gorgeous shot, Scott! This is just wonderful - you captured the white and yet the details remain. Not an easy task.
12 Dec 2009 6:20am
I like how you can see the hills in the background.
12 Dec 2009 6:27am
Wonderful b/w- I can feel the cold.

Gorgeous. We sure don't get to see our oaks like that too often.

It's a fantastic unusual image in my californian experience, very good!!

Lovely winter landscape !

Exquisite! And everything is covered in a blanket of snow... Beautifully captured.

This beautiful composition, very successful, and a superb treatment I love, and bravo!

I can't imagine California under the snow ! When I went there it was summer and I guess it's hard to imagine this landscape under snow. Anyway, it exists and wow, I must admit that it's beautiful. A great Christmas postcard.

How lovely this is ... and I like the distant hillside you captured in what would otherwise have been a white sky.
The angled fence lines draw the eye right into the snow-laden Oaks. Beautiful!

A fresh coat of snow has a way of simplifying the landscape and reducing it to its most beautiful form. Congrats on climbing out of bed early, braving the arctic weather, and making a stunning image for all of us to enjoy!

What a wonderful shot!
12 Dec 2009 3:33pm
Wow; this is fabulous, Scott. Where was it taken?
12 Dec 2009 4:29pm
@john4jack: Thanks for the comment. This is in the diablo range east of San jose/Morgan Hill area
Nice! i like the snow on the fence.

A great scene Scott, it's difficult for us to imagine snow in the San Francisco area, we always think of California as a sunshine state!

In the 15+ years that I lived in the Bay Area, I never saw snow like that. In my memory, the place where you took your shot is known more for its summer heat.
12 Dec 2009 7:57pm
I like the composition, it's a very beautiful landscape !
12 Dec 2009 8:22pm
I like the image for the contrast in tones and the "simplicity" from the snow. Very nice.
12 Dec 2009 9:57pm
Nicely captured Scott! It is a scene we see for about 9 months of the year and sometimes take for granted the beauty that lies within. Bravo! ;-)

Very nice photo....
13 Dec 2009 2:12am
Amazing detail in B & W
13 Dec 2009 8:53am
Absolutely awesome!! A very beautiful image bringing both purity and poetry to mind Scott!

Magnificent capture Scott.

Winter at its best.

Winter in all its splendor.

La neige dans toute sa splendeur :)

LOVE this , Scott !! It is amazing, it is romantic, it is so pretty ! I know, it is very cold, but who cares for cold when such a pretty pictures come to your screen !!!
13 Dec 2009 5:15pm
Diablo range, and yet such a heavenly image. Absolutely wonderful, Scott, the beauty of the scenery under it's blanket of white shines through in your hands (and eyes).
13 Dec 2009 5:18pm
Bravo, Scott - I lover the B&W for this. It's been 7 or 8 years since I managed to get some snow ridge images in the Bay Area. Good timing.
13 Dec 2009 5:27pm
Oh, Scott, i would have loved to see this ! Thanks for sharing, it looks like a painter (Corot-like) dream*
13 Dec 2009 5:37pm
It is so amazing to see every tiny branch coated with snow! This doesn't happen often here on the California coast, but it is spectacular when it does! You have a fantastic ability to "be there" when the magic happens! (but I know that it's more planning and commitment than luck!)
13 Dec 2009 6:24pm
Awesome! BW is perfect for this scene. And this is one heckuva photo.
13 Dec 2009 7:24pm
Wow, beautiful snow, and it's on everything! How fun to shoot in that!
14 Dec 2009 4:45am
Very beautiful winter shot
14 Dec 2009 6:11am

14 Dec 2009 4:24pm
@dj.tigersprout: This is in the San Francisco Bay area in the Diablo Range which runs along the easter side of the Santa Clara Valley
