The Shadowy Trail of Ferry Island

With the Sun hovering pass late noon on the service access road on Ferry Island, I took this photo, thinking that it looked neat the way the Sun casting its light through the trees on the road. By this time, the temperature was a blustery 15C, and I felt I had to undo my jacket from the spring day warmth. It was hard to get the shot too becuase of the amount of people who were also out hiking, as I did not want people in the photo. But with time ticking by, and I needed to get to a bathroom, this was the time to get the photo, with people out in the distance. The other folks were far enough away, it did not mess the composition of the image too badly.

I have seen many shots taken from this vantage point, but none had shadows like this in them. So I felt quite lucky with the timing. Once the leaves are out, this place is always in the shade, but with the Sun so high in sky, the shadows seem sharper and more pronounced than usual this time of year. Sadly, you only get to see this image as a 500 x 300 pixel image, you should see it as a 6000 x 3000 pixels.
