Today’s Thursday Picture was taken on a short hike I took at El Corte de Madera Open Space Preserve off of Skyline Boulevard.
There are well over 30+ miles in this preserve to hike, bike, or ride. As always, check your trail map before heading down the trail. Be advised that some trails are closed to use to bikes or horses.
This picture was taken on the Sierra Morena Trail that is just off one of the Mid Peninsula Regional Open Space District’s newer paved parking areas. Although this hike was short and easy – less than a mile out and back with roughly 500 feet of elevation gain/loss – it passes through a very scenic mixed oak and evergreen part of the preserve. This is a perfect lunch time hike if you are in the area and want to get outside!
I took this picture with my Canon A710. As you can see, I continue to struggle where I come across mixed light on partially overcast days. If you have any tips, please let me know. I have very thick skin and am eager to become a better outdoor photographer!
Where are you hiking this weekend?
If you’re looking for me, I’m over the hill!
