• The record for the largest man made park in the world perhaps should be given to the Presidio since every tree here was planted by the military.
  • Very wet winter. I knew the grass canopy would be lush green. Late afternoon light presented the long shadows.
  • Visible detail in the tree trunks officially sealed my conversion to digital printing. Yet, as of 2012, I still create (in the field) with Fuji Velvia transparency film.

    HI Michael, This is a gorgeous photograph! I would like to use it in an iMovie I'm creating to upload to YouTube to accompany a professional recording of my song "Promised Land," which includes these lyrics:

    It is hard to reach all I can be
    When oppression's living within me
    O help me now to end this slavery

    If you have any questions or concerns, or would like a link to the video when it's posted, email me as soon as possible at joymweinbergmusic@gmail.com Again, congratulations on this super image! Best wishes, Joy
