snow on saddleback

We had a rare storm sweep into Southern California from the NE this past weekend. Our weather usually comes from the warm Pacific, but this storm brought chilly weather from the mountains our way. When we woke Sunday morning we were greeted by snow on Saddleback Mountain – a rare sight in Orange County!

Late in the afternoon we were treated to a rainbow over the fresh snow. I joined dozens of other photography nerds in capturing the moment. The last photo, the purplish one, is Saddleback in infrared.

I took the additional nerdy step of putting together panoramas since the view was so wide and great. I’m giving a package called Panorama Tools a test-drive to stitch these together. Check out PTGui if you are interested in trying.
