DelValle #2
My second shoot of the year found me back at Delvalle. Aside from some Geese and one lonely Pelican, there wasn't much wildlife to shoot. So, I spent my day setting up some Panoramas and other landscapes.  Not too shabby.  I'm headed for the Bay tomorrow to shoot some waterfowl at Bair Island Wildlife Preserve.

DelValle #1
For a first shoot of the year 2021, this was a new experience for myself and the dogs.  The westside of the park is still closed, so I couldn't get to the Equine Staging area where I could capture the Eagle nest. Instead of following our normal routine and walking the East Shore Trail, we hiked the Oak Grove, Black Sage, and Cedar Mount Trail to the top of Cedar Mount, elevation 826 feet.  This is on the opposite side of Delvalle Road from the lake. 
See the map in the first image: The white circle shows the park's entrance kiosk.  The blue arrow points to the boat ramp and the East Shore Trail. The blue circle shows the Oak Grove trail head. The summit is circled in pencil black. This was a beautiful trek through the Oak Groves to the top, that beat the heck out of my poor old legs. (Phew - 😓.      I made it up to one point that overlooks the campground and in the distance you could see the area where the Eagle Nest is located (image #58), though I still can't pick it out of the clutter.  I made some images of the groves, some panoramas and a few candid shots of the girls at play, to include a video of them coming back after they got out of my sight while I was shooting the lake.
