Photographing in the Sierras with a G3

I’ve made several trips to the Sierras in California this year, specifically in the Southern Sierra Nevada area along the Kern River near Kernville. This last trip was the first that I left all of my DSLR gear at home and carried just the Panasonic G3 with the Panasonic 7-14mm f*4; 20mm f*1.7; and 45mm f*2.8 lenses. It was quite fun to have such a light system, all of which fit nicely into a small shoulder bag which doesn’t look like a photography gear bag.

In this first series, I’ve included some photographs taken in the Tehachapi Mountains along the Caliente-Bodfish Road east of Bakersfield. It was the foggiest weather I’ve ever seen here in California. Then, some scenics that show the fall colors in the Kern River Valley area. Finally, a few flowers that are quite showy in this part of the country.

Caliente is now just a postal district. In the 1800's it was a booming town when the railroad was being built.
