Golden Hour
01-DEC-2007 Ed Lindquist

Golden Hour

This shot was taken at about 7 pm on December 1,2007
at Half Moon Bay California.
We were camping at a beautiful state park. This park
and many more were threatened with closure by our Governor.
They have decided to keep the parks open by raising the use
fees and cutting back on the upkeep. Even if they doubled the use fees,
that would be better then closing these wonderful parks.

Thanks for all of the comments. Yes, it is a shame that we have to pay to enjoy nature's beauty. The power of money seems to control almost every aspect of our lives. Ed Lindquist

Good onya Ed... 'here here' well done.... we must not allow the 'bean counters' to use $$$ as an excuse to deny access to 'Nature's wonders'

How pitiful it is that mere humans who are but on this earth for such a short time lay claim and greedily hold ransome to collect from we who simply behold its splendour? Why?

I'll get down from my soapbox... but it annoys me so to see the bureaucrats become the 'Saviours of ourselves'

Struggling back to your image Ed... love the clouds.
Regards Bob
