Briones Overlook Staging Area - Part 3 (EBMUD Park) - Orinda, CA

I went up to a East Bay MUD Park at Briones Overlook Staging Area on May 28, 2016 to take photos. After visiting the East Bay MUD Park at Valle Vista Staging Area in Moraga, CA (you can view my photos from that park here), I visited Briones Overlook Staging Area. At this park, I took scenery photos, wildlife photos, and many sunset photos. I am here to share with you the photos I took in the park. Since I took many photos, I am splitting the photos into 3 blog posts. I hope you enjoy these photos.

Valle Vista Staging Area (EBMUD Park) - Moraga, CA

I went up to a East Bay MUD Park at Valle Vista Staging Area on May 28, 2016 to take photos. On this trip I took photos with my DSLR and my DJI Phantom 3 Professional Quadcopter. Please take note that flying aircrafts and quadcopters are not allowed in the park. I was not aware of the rule when I flew. You can read more about that incident and see my aerial photos here. After I finished in this park, I also headed to another East Bay MUD Park at Briones Overlook Staging Area in Moraga, CA. The blog post with photos from that park can be found here.

As for why I am only posting these photos now, here is why. If you have watched my June vlog, you would know I got my wisdom teeth pulled and I had a pretty busy month, so I didn't have a lot of time to process my photos. I am finally done processing the photos and I can finally share the photos with you guys. I really hope you enjoy these photos.
