222/365 - I'm Gonna Soak Up the Sun

Oak trees on the Pleasanton Ridge. (DPS Basics - Rule of Thirds)


I haven't been happy with my photography lately. Call it a rut, a lack of time, tiredness, or laziness. I decided I needed to snap out of it (no pun intended), so I left the office at 4 PM and headed to my happy place....the Pleasanton Ridge. I'm at home on the trails and it's a great place to clear my head and let my spirit loose.


The challenge this time of year is the sun. The trail head is east facing, so the ridge blocks the late afternoon sun. I walked briskly and jogged up the ridge to get to the beautiful light at the top. Fortunately, I got to the ridgeline before the sun hid behind the next ridge.
