Sausal Creek walk





A friend and I recently took a walk up the Sausal Creek trail (near Dimond Park in Oakland), where we were treated to a variety of birds, aquatic creatures and much greenery. Here are a few photos from that walk. My favorite photo is of a giant spider web, where because of the short field of focus and the sun shining through the web, I was lucky enough to catch some iridescent colors. Here are the photos:
Top line: I love how the light played with the ascending column of leaves

Middle line right: Water skimmers and the mesmerizing ripples they created in the stream
Bottom line left: The spider web with the shimmering colors
