About This Image

An afternoon at the Robert Crown State Beach in Alameda, CA on San Francisco Bay.

As you can see it is a nice location with great views, beautiful trees and an easy lifestyle. A great place to go kitesurfing, though there was little activity there on this day, since it was nearly windless.

Thanks guys. I am glad you appreciate the shot. I spent several hours bending that branch to get it just right so it would point at the bicyclist. (and boy are my arms tired). Actually, I was in the park admiring how the trees caught the sunlight and decided to photograph them. I noticed every once and a while a bicyclist or pedestrian would pass by along the path, adding to the composition of my shot. I just parked myself in a good position and snapped when someone came into the frame in the right position. This is one of the few portrait shots I took. Most are landscape using the lower branch to frame the person passer by. This one works because both lines of the tree edge appear to converge on the bicyclist. (A fact I noticed only later when reviewing my shots).

of course, you will know that this is another one of yours that I love, Alex. That beautiful tree being the main subject, but yet the cyclist adds something special too. lovely peaceful scene

Another good one Alex. I like the way the lower branch curves down to point to the cyclist. Well done Jim
