Snowcaps through the Cajon Pass

We’re still on January 5, 2011.  I’m heading back to Fontana on the 15 heading to the Cajon Pass.  And I’m snapping the shutter and taking photos!
If you have ever made that run from Vegas to So Cal proper, then this will look familiar.
Just past the summit heading down the pass.  Everyone was kind of enough to stop their vehicles for me so I could take this shot.
It is a magnificent view.  Most never notice though.
On the left side middle of the photo, you can see where the north and south bound lanes rejoin.  It is also the CHP’s favorite spot to wait for those unfortunate souls who are still pissed off from losing so much money and are not paying attention to their downhill speed – probably 90 plus.

And this is what happens when your auto focus decides the windshield is what you wanted to capture.  A dirty windshield doesn’t help.

These five pictures were shot in program mode and all shot with my Canon PowerShot A540.
