A Photo of a Different Color (Las Trampas Regional Wilderness)
In a further effort to explore the parks of the East Bay, we recently ventured forth to Las Trampas Regional Wilderness. For a little fun (and to enhance the textures and moods) we added a color element to the photos we took. Notice what effect each color has on each photo as you join us on our hike amongst the Technicolor Hills!
Mt. Diablo to the west (looking very demonic in red).
Looking south along the Corduroy Hills towards Danville.
The afternoon sun reveals a pockmarked hillside along Rocky Ridge.
This picture pulls your eyes like a rushing wind up the path and to the tops of the trees of Las Trampas Ridge to the left.
Despite the diagonal rays of light, the symmetry of the two trees straddling the path settles your eyes at the center of the photo.
This tilted picture throws you off-balance causing you to lean right to avoid being pulled left. (The zigzagging path suggests various levels of success in overcoming the leftward pull.)
The trees, path, and sloping hill in this picture pull your eyes helplessly to the right.
These stoic cows look like they are modeling for Calvin Klein.
This hollowed tree trunk stands like the surviving pillar of a Greek ruin.
Here EJ replicates the famous scene from The Sound of Music. (The hills definitely were alive.)
While Mark keeps us a safe distance from the tempting Mt. Diablo.
