About This Image

For those of you whom have been with TLF for some time, you will recognize this subject (Five Trees). It is located in Alameda, California on San Francisco Bay. Since I live a few blocks from this location, I am drawn there frequently. I have submitted similar photos a handful of times in the past. This is the first using 20D and wide angle lens. I apologize for repetition, but I feel that is an extraordinarily beautiful location and I can't help but photograph it when the conditions are correct.

Since most of my shots are in the late afternoon, every shot appears quite different as the sky and lighting change. Even with a few minutes, a subsequent picture appears quite new. Every time I see a print, I realize how lucky I am to live here.

This is a beautiful location for sure--have you ever considered adding an element of living creature--a bird, an animal, persons something to make it less static

Lovely coloring - and it isn't repetition when it's such a fresh look!

I agree with the others. There is a new personality about it. I counted the trees. *g* I walked into the picture, sat down and looked at the water flowing along, the clouds seeming to hang over the trees as if they to wanted to stay there. A beautiful place that keeps calling to one. I'm waiting for its next apppearance. Truly!! As seasons pass? Wonderful picture.

Yes I did recognise the scene immediately Alex, but I am quite stunned by your artistry. The lighting, colours and balance of the elements is just great.

no need to apologize, Alex D. It is a lovely vista and worth seeing again, especially with your new equipment.

The photo is beautiful and I agree it has got to be a lovely place to live. Carol
