We were treated to a last minute clearing for sunset after a day of gloomy thunderstorms over Bass Lake. You just can't beat a calm lake in the forest for sunset shots. It never ceases to amaze me how beautiful it is in the Sierra Nevada mountains of California.

Sparkles of light dance on the surface of a distant see but wait, this is no ocean, this is Fresno California. A jewel of lights on California's Big Valley. It was a perfect blend of light, fog, haze and a distant sunset that glimmered over the distant coastal foothills. This is Fresno as seen from high above in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains and it shimmers and moves as the lights twinkle in the hazy lights of the city below.

Just like the year 2014, the fireworks show put on by The Pines Resort at Bass Lake came all too quick to an end with burst of rainbow colored fireworks illuminating the night sky. The party over, the lake quickly died back down though I think it took the ducks that had been long asleep on the lake just before the show a while to settle back down for the night. We gathered up our gear and made it back to our home and a warm fire and pondered the last year as we looked forward to the New Year.

We had planned to film the Christmas Tree lighting in Oakhust but at the last minute decided to take in the sunset on Bass Lake. The sunset turned in to a full moonrise and we found ourselves in awe of the beauty of the lake under a cold December sky. Light from the many cabins on the far shore reflected in the mirror perfect water and the pines backlit by moonlit smoke from many fireplaces and fog that had clung to the hills during sunset. It was a great evening having earlier had a Bald Eagle fly directly over but alas too dark to capture his swift wings as he flew quickly across the lake. The majesty of the Sierra Mountains never ceases to amaze me and is a favorite subject for my photography.

Descending down steep cliffs into Yosemite Valley during Autumn you quickly enter a wonderland of color and magic light. The steep cliffs protect the canyon below and the forest becomes more lush, more colorful and more magical. I typically avoid roads but how can you resist a scene like this? Without the road the forest quickly becomes dense and closes in around you. The saying you can't see the forest for the trees becomes apparently true so the road give us this incredible view of the various trees that grow along the canyon floor. It's not the big sweeping vista that Yosemite is so well known for but... wow!
