on the waterfront

Over the last couple of weeks I've had more opportunities than usual to spend along Oakland's waterfront, from Jack London Square down to Hegenberger. People know about the pathway along the water in Jack London Square, but you can (with some detours) take that all the way down to the Martin Luther King Jr. Regional Shoreline around San Leandro Bay. It's particularly lovely in the early morning with the tide out, watching the shorebirds feeding in the mudflats. It's hard to believe it's not far from I-880.

I particularly like the stretch from Doolittle near the Oakland Airport out to Oyster Bay Regional Park. There are some great views of the Bay, and if you have knobby tires on your bike there are some fun and relatively easy trails to zip around on.

Cool! I'll have to check that out sometime.

Once again, a really good slideshow. Such nice light in these photos.

@ODP - the joys of golden hour photography. The early morning and late evening light can be so warm and lovely.

Your blog hates me...again. Working on leaving a comment because these photos are too gorgeous not to say so. I agree with Oakland daily - the lighting is magical

Thanks for the kind words and taking the extra time to leave a comment. And for the reminder to look into that problem :-/
