Arroyo Del Valle Trail (Part 1) - Pleasanton, CA

Hello guys! If you followed me here in the past, you would know I used to walk on Arroyo Del Valle Trail in Pleasanton, CA all the time, but I've neglected to do so for at least a year or two now. I have went back walking on that trail on a new segment I have never been before, so I hope you enjoy the shots! As for new guys, Arroyo Del Valle Trail is a really long walking trail here in Pleasanton, CA that stretches a great distance. Many locals go there to exercise and take daily walks. It is also a trail filled with photographic opportunities as you will see in the coming blog posts. The photos will be split into several blog posts, and will also be split into scenery and bird photos. I have also shot many bird photos while on this walk. I really hope you enjoy.

The blog post for today will include some scenery shots, and one long exposure sunset photo.

Message From the Photographer: Hi guys, if you have been following me on my blog for a while, you will know my Nexus 5 broke on me, and a smartphone is very important in my photography. Anyways, my parents had a Nexus 6 they didn't want anymore because it is too big so they gave that to me. Good thing is I have a new phone, bad thing is I am still a broke college student. Most of my photography equipment is my parents'. I had to get some new accessories Nexus 6 like getting a new charger due to the larger capacity battery, new USB cables, phone case, pouch, etc... These things cost me out of pocket quite some money. I am not asking for donations, however I am trying to source some funds to help cover these costs.

Long exposure sunset shot with an ND filter. Photo was shot toward I-680. I normally display my photos in chronological order, but this photo was so good (in my opinion), I decided to move it to the front. This photo originally was suppose to be at the end of this blog post.
