Photo 101 – Mystery & Lighting Effects
I took this picture at the Coal Creek Open Space Preserve in the Santa Cruz Mountains off of Skyline Boulevard just west of San Jose/Silicon Valley. The sun was obscured by clouds most of the day while I was hiking. I was able to take this shot down Crazy Peete’s Trail just as the sun peeked out of the clouds.
I like how there are spots of shadow and light in this picture. I also like how the trail leads the eye towards the top of the picture. What do you think?
I’ve got to catch up on assignments!
If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill.
