2019-01-03 – Landscape Photography, Mount Diablo, Set 3

Today’s goal was to take Mount Diablo pictures from a new location. Yesterday Dianne and I checked out the Empire Mine Road, which is now a walking trail, from its starting point which is the Mesa Ridge Road junction. We did see Mount Diablo and therefore agreed to use this location for today’s set.

After arriving at the entry of the Empire Mine Road trail, we walked for about 1/3 of a mile to find a good location for me to capture a few PICTURES of Mount Diablo from across the corner of Cache Peak Drive and Cougar Peak Way.

The sky was not as clear as I had hoped for, the mountain was surrounded with a bit of haze. Maybe it is the sign for the forecasted rain in 3 days.

Below is the complete set of photos taken:
