Your Scene: High Sierra thrills and chills

Each year, Julie Kirby treks out to Bishop Creek in the Sierras to catch the autumn colors. Last October, light snow fell the night before she arrived. She had set out hoping to beat the snowfall, but the precipitation turned out to be a bonus.

“I had never photographed the golden leaves dusted with snow, before the cold turned them black and the wind ripped them away,” she said.

The Glendale resident used a Canon PowerShot A720 IS to photograph this wintery scene.
