    Twilight and beyond in Truckee, CA

    Really charming, funky town. The first was shot with the 70-200VR, the rest with the 17-55, all hand held (forgot the plate the tripod grips onto). Used some Nik filters on #3 and #5...

    A really cool bookstore...










    On Saturday nights, they show movies. Tonight's was The Maltese Falcon. There were about 10 people in there watching it...






    Last two...

    Nice series gromitspapa! It looks a bit like the community from the old TV show Northern Exposure ( a bit more upscale maybe).

    The one shot that caught my eye was number 2. It looks to be a great bit of water for Fly Fishing!

    Thanks for posting.

    TRSmith- used to love "Northern Exposure." I remember someone described it as a "vegetarian Twin Peaks." #2 was just behind a house in town on a side street. I was driving around waiting for it to get dark enough for the diner shot.

    Jono- yes, I'm using the D300. What a great balance of ability and value. I don't think I would have gotten as nice a result in the bookstore with the D200 I used to have. Found that bookstore also while waiting for it to get dark. Need to go back, have a latte, and watch a classic movie...

    Yeah, but does its one hotel have room enough for all of us?

    We certainly can't complain about the room rates: "Steam Heated Rooms: $1.00"

    Little do we realize that the entire town is wired with 100Mb fiber optic connections and everyone there has mad hacking skillz.

    I was in Truckee in Feb. Here's a link to some of the photos. Train buffs would love it up there.

    You'd be surprised at how close that is to the truth!

    Fun pix of a neat place!
