Attention Allergy/Asthma Sufferers: Extreme Pollen Levels in Eastern Sierra Nevada / Yosemite at 8500 Ft on up to 10,600' and Higher

I posted on pine pollen last week... the pollen is far worse this week (I am in the eastern Yosemite area). The pines at 10,000' on up are going gangbusters—whack a branch and a cloud of pollen puffs off it.

I shot a lot of images yesterday, but I had to wear a P100 (similar to N100) face mask all day long for my hike. The air is way better in downtown Los Angeles, at least if you are allergic. I can’t ventilate my van except minimally because it will suck in gobs of pollen and I start sneezing. Can’t roll down the windows, or I immediately start sneezing. So I run the A/C which filters out the pollen, and keep the windows closed.

I’m working on a bunch of stuff for publication (Sigma 105mm f/1.4 DG HSM Art on Nikon, Zeiss Milvus 15mm f/2.8 Distagon and others on Nikon, Sigma FE 70mm f/2.8 macro for Sony), but I need a day or two to prep and prepare the material I shot.zz

...

3M Particular Respirator 8233, N100

The pine pollen is severe in the Eastern Sierra up to 10,700' feet elevation (and it blows higher and lower, which blows).

Take an N100 / P100*face mask if you suffer from pine pollen allergies.

* P100 same as N100 except that it traps oil particles as well.
