Re: Cannot post photos

Bob,

Was that photo in a JPEG format?

That's gorgeous. Is that from the Palm Springs area?

Cannot post photos

I've been having trouble posting photos. The format is JPEG. Whenever I try to upload them the browser seems to be doing something, but then the message "405 -- Forbidden" appears. Has anyone else had this problem? Thanks.

Re: Allens Meadows Park and Kristine Lilly Field

I am now able to post photos, so here are some from this very promising spot. The park is a recreational one containing several soccer fields. At its western border, there is a creek and a hillside. The hillside is, at its tallest, almost 200 feet tall. It is not part of the park and does not contai...

Re: Where does the trunk end?

This reminds me of the question, "What is a shrub, and what is a tree?" Authorities have tried to provide specific numbers, but these seem arbitrary. So a tree is a woody plant over twelve feet tall--why not a woody plant over 12'3" tall? Or over 11'11" tall? And so on. A horticulturalist named Guy ...

Re: Nikon Forestry Pro can't see branch ends in winter

Jim, I just stuck a 3/16" diameter twig into the snow and shot at it. Put it well ahead of a well-defined backdrop. Forestry Pro was able to distinguish between the backdrop and the twig--40 feet versus 72. You may have a defective product. The Forestry Pro has a "1st" setting and a "DST" setting. H...

Re: Nikon Forestry Pro can't see branch ends in winter

Jim,

I have not had this problem. That's strange. Then again, I have used my forestry pro almost exclusively on tulip trees, which have the nice big dried flowers on the ends of the twigs.

Mount a thin branch onto something and try shooting at it.

That is an amazing hickory, by the way!

Not familiar with this species, but it's cool to see humbler species getting attention!

Re: Elliptical Paraboloid and Southern California

Behind San Gorgonio there are two very beautiful towns, Lake Arrowhead and Big Bear Lake. I visited them in 2012 and saw this beauty:

Re: Allens Meadows Park and Kristine Lilly Field

Thanks Bob. I would like to show you these places in the spring when it's nicer out. Just let me know what time works for you.

Re: Allens Meadows Park and Kristine Lilly Field

Thanks Erik. And yes, that tulip is amazing. I just have to get permission to measure it. And yes, by "western", I mean east-facing. I have found that east-facing slopes that are not too rocky are usually colonized by tulips. They simply out-compete everything else and form pure stands, with a red o...
