Cellpic Sunday — 2/26/23

John Steiner, the blogger behind Journeys With Johnbo, has this prompt he calls Cellpic Sunday in which he asks us to post a photo that was taken with a cellphone, tablet, or another mobile device. I thought this might be fun so I decided to join in.

We very rarely get snow in the San Francisco Bay area, but on Thursday night, with below freezing temperatures at the higher elevations — above 2,000 feet — we got snow.

Well, not at our house. Our house is at an elevation of about 575 feet above sea level, and all we got was rain. We live in what some refer to as the foothills of Mount Diablo, which rises to about 3,850 feet at its summit. On Friday afternoon, during a break in the rain, I went out to my backyard, looked to the east, and took the picture below showing the very unusual scene of snow on Mount Diablo.

If you wish to participate in this fun cellphone photo prompt, please click on the link to John’s post at the top of my post to see his photo and to read his instructions.

    Hey, this is a nice one. You’ve got the target framed with clouds on top and bushes below. Well done….

    That photo will be a memory for you, for sure. When we spent winters in Arizona, the nearby White Tank Mountains never had snow on them. That is until one particularly cold and wet January day. I got a few photos of the first time I’d ever seen snow on the White Tanks. 🙂
