Pictures at the Park

Today while Corey was gone on a work-sponsored snowboarding trip, I decided to head out to Shimoda Swan Park to get some photography practice in. It was cold, but I had the whole park pretty much to myself and had a lot of fun just leisurely walking around and finding photo-opportunities. Here are my favorite shots from the day:

Thanks guys!

Stephanie- the park has a playground area and swings, but if I remember correctly, I don't think it has the baby-type swings. Not sure though? And it's really close by- take a left at the circle K on POL road, left at the street with the Aeon sign after the strawberry nursery, and a right at the sign with the big swan. The park is on the right side a mile or two down that road.

Wow, these are great pictures. You have an eye.

But one question: a 'work sponsored snowboarding trip'?! Must be hard 'work' =)
