On 30 December 2021, my parents and I took a trip up to Lick Observatory in Mt. Hamilton, CA to see the snow. Snow in the San Francisco Bay Area is very rare, and I hear on this day, Mt. Hamilton received record breaking levels of snow the night before. The day I was there, it was pretty foggy up on Mt. Hamilton with clouds and fog drifting in and out, but towards the end at around sunset, the clouds and fog did clear for a really spectacular sunset. I took photos with my mirrorless camera. The photos are split into 2 blog posts. I hope you enjoy viewing my photos.

This is part 1 of the photos I took at Lick Observatory that day. The photos for today will feature State Route 130, the Shane 3-meter Reflector Telescope, the 36-inch Crossley Reflector Telescope, and more!
Message from the Photographer: These photos from December took a really long time to process. While the experimental treatment for visual snow did partially fix my day time vision, taking photos is still a challenge, and I can't process the photos that fast. I am still visually impaired and night blind, just not as impaired during the day compared to before. I know these photos are a few months late, but this is the best I can do.
This is all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed viewing the photos! Next time I will show you the rest of my sunset photos shot that day. Please don't forget to share the blog post with your friends and family members!
