Where: Between Sacramento and San Diego. I think the top photo is around Fresno or Modesto, the bottom one around Canyon Country or Santa Clarita. Can you tell?
When: Dec. 27, 2009
Too big? There's a smaller version of the top photo at Flickr.
Update 1/13/10: I was off by 10-15 miles as the crow flies on the bottom photo. It's Simi Valley. See the notes in the Flickr version.
Second update 1/13/10: Found the top photo, too. I was pretty close. It's Clovis, about 12 miles northeast of central Fresno. See the notes in the Flickr version.
