Male Mallard

Garin Park ducks in the pond looking for a handout. quick clicks to try to get a photo of the ducks swimming by on the small pond.
Sometimes  you are patient enough to get lucky.
Love the colors and the waves created by the fast swimming ducks!

Orange and black

Backlight allows the color to show through the petals and makes for a very different view of the petals, etc.

Taken at Garin Park in Fremont California last week.

Purple Passion

Not sure what this flower is, but I liked the sun shinning through the petals from the back.

A little exposure adjustment was necessary to bring out the detail in the petals.

Taken at Garin Park in Fremont last week.

Garin Park Today

Visited Garin Park today in Fremont.
Weather was wonderful, the poppies on the hillside were wonderful, as were the views.
We hiked up the long hills, and this was the view from the top.

Bay Area Panorams

Please double click the image to reveal the full size. Bay area panorama view taken from Grizzly Peak Road in Berkeley March 11th. A little haze, but still an amazing view. Hand held, but next time when it is clear, I will use the tripod.

Tilden Park Gardens

A quick visit to Tilden Park in Berkeley today.
Not too much in bloom, but the garden is beautiful. Great paths, and everything is clearly marked so you know the names of the plants.
Wonderful weather, limited parking, free admission, and good times for all.
