A fine shot of someone enjoying this place. I especially like the dense trees and the resulting banding across the picture.

DULCIE from Danville, CA, United States

It is so serene and peaceful...if only for a minute or an afternoon. The trees and dark undergrowth almost seem to lurk in the background...hinting or portending of change. (I guess I'm in a certain mood.) ;-)

I like the off center placement of the focal point - centering the subject would have been too ordinary. This is far more interesting.
