    It's the other way round. What is universally known as autumn in most of the English speaking world is known as fall in some of the U.S.

    And Canada too -- although like any good Canadian I use both UK and US versions.

    Well, the golden hour is when it's neither night nor daylight. The golden season thus for me would be when it's neither summer nor winter. Although I do enjoy summer because it lets me shoot slow film without having to worry.

    Or more accurately, fall in American, autumn in English!

    We do sometimes say of someone older that they are in the Autumn of their life. The alternate would result in a lot of injuries!

    Getting back to the original question, there is both great light and terrible light in all seasons and I don't really have a favourite.

    However, whilst I don't mind going out in the cold, I don't like it if it is too hot so that would eliminate some of the summer (even in England!).

    I also don't like the type of temperatures we get in the spring and the end of the summer when it's too cool to go out without a jacket but too warm to wear it continuously!

    I thought you might have meant Yucaipa. It borders Redlands to the east.

    But the place you're thinking of is Oak Glen. Coming from the west on I-10 you go through Yucaipa to get there. It's twice the elevation at about 5000 ft. (snow in winter!) so is a nice place to head to when it's sweltering down here. I was just up there last week. Oak Glen Road loops from Yucaipa up to Oak Glen then back down to Beaumont, where I lived as a kid and again some years later. We used to go up at harvest time and again to play in the snow. From no snow to a foot or more in 20 minutes!

    Oak Glen is not without its faults, though. Well, one big one. It sits directly atop the San Andreas.

    I'd have to go with winter. The alabama summer is just too hot to do anything productive during the daytime, but being out at night is tolerable sometimes (Heatstroke and/or sunburn really takes the pleasure out of photography). PArts of the spring and autumn are out for me because I have crazy bad allergies (plants need to evolve a better way of making babies. during my lifetime would be nice )
