For this week’s Monochrome Madness Challenge I have selected a shot I took a few years ago while strolling along the San Francisco Bay Shoreline trail in San Leandro. This area is about a mile north of the Heron Bay entrance to the trail and parallels the Monarch Bay Golf Club’s Tony Lema Course.

I think the monochrome conversion helped accentuate the six different landscape layers between the water on the bottom and the sky on top. That’s cordgrass near the water, pampas grass beyond the walkway. The Monarch Bay Golf Club’s Tony Lema Course sprawls between the pampas grass and the East Bay hills in the distance.
I live about ten miles east of San Francisco Bay. This part of the Bay Trail is the closest to my home and I have visited it often over the years. See here for my posting on Heron Bay last year.
