Lunch Time

Lunch Time, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Here’s a Giraffe doing only what she can do better than anyone else. Get a bite to eat very high. They have a nice Tower of Giraffes at the Sacramento Zoo and it’s nice because you can shoot them without having to deal with glass or wire between you and them (at least for head shots).

Shooting at the Zoo

Shooting at the Zoo, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

I love it when I get another good one for my “Shoot the Shooter” set. This fine gentleman was all set up at the Zoo and now I know that tripods are allowed. He was shooting the Flamingos as I was too shortly after taking this photo.

Red Panda

Red Panda, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Took my Grandson to the Sac Airport Monday and had a chance to visit the Sacramento Zoo again. Here is one of the animals that was not out on my last visit. The Red Panda. Different from the Giant Panda but I think they both got their share of the cuteness factor.

Busted Bricks

Busted Bricks, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Here are some of the great old brick walls at Old Shasta. These walls are quite old. The original town buildings were build of wood and then a fire wiped out the town so the main part of town was rebuilt with bricks to withstand fire. Unfortunately old age gets them all.

Whiskey Creek Arm

Whiskey Creek Arm, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Another view of Whiskeytown Lake and how low the water level is. This is looking up the Whiskey Creek inlet with a view of the Handicapped Fishing Platform. It is currently about 8 to 10 feet above the edge of the lake. I was able to see the nice fish habitat created below the platform with a number of dead small trees/bushes cabled together. Great place for bass to hang out.

Fallen Friend

Hate to see it. Dead trees that is. This is another angle of the fallen pine tree with slate gray cones. Previously at water’s edge but now about 30 to 40 feet from edge.

Western Star Lodge

Western Star Lodge, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Just a little old building in Old Shasta sitting all alone. The sky was just about right the other day when I stopped in Shasta and I got this shot with the 17-40mm f4L. Such a nice little wide angle lens. It’s funny ’cause at one time I thought that I only wanted long glass and didn’t see the use of a wide angle. Of course that changed once I had a chance to use one on a Crown Camera Photo Walk.

Whiskeytown Mono

Whiskeytown Mono, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

Here’s a view I last shot at night. It’s looks a bit different in the light of day. The water level is about about 8 feet down from what I could see this week. Doesn’t seem like much but that is about the lowest I’ve ever seen this lake.

Whiskeytown General Store

Whiskeytown General Store, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

It really was a long time since I’d been this way. Last time this building, in addition to saying General Store, also claimed to be the Whiskeytown Post Office. After a quick Google search I find that this building and the Post Office where originally in Whiskeytown which is now at the bottom of Whiskeytown Lake (created in 1962 and visited by President Kennedy in 1963). There were moved to this spot before filling the lake.

California Cones

California Cones, originally uploaded by ronWLS.

I took a walk at Whiskeytown Lake today in a spot that I’ve not been in probably 10 to 15 years. I did find the lake the lowest that I’ve ever seen. I found this pine tree that had fallen over and the cones were dead/dying. Couldn’t tell the exact cause but it sure looked liked a victim of the “Drought”.
