Shiny — It’s High Noon, Tide’s Out, Mud


Tracks in the mud, Mid-day, Palo Alto Baylands, 2017

The glare is almost blinding: it’s noon in August and the tide is out, leaving a shiny film of water on the exposed salt flats in Palo Alto’s Baylands Park. Taking photos here is a challenge, but I enjoy walking and shooting in the mid-day sun.

Just another day in the Baylands.

Cheers, Carto
