Realizing I only had a few moments before the sun dropped, I quickly parked my car, jumped out and grabbed my camera. I composed my image and exposed for the sky. I was only able to shoot a few frames before the women moved and the sky changed, so I felt lucky that I happened to be at the right place at the right time.

My assignment was to illustarte a story on Fort Ord Public Lands. I was sent to the Creekside Terrace Trailhead on the East side of Fort Ord. For this image I used my Canon EOS 5D Mark II with a 16-35mm f2.8 lens set to 16mm. ISO was set to 100, shutter speed to 1/15 sec at f22. I picked a nice section of trail, held the camera low to the ground and walked real fast.

While I was not on the clock yet for my day, I drove ahead of the group, grabbed my camera and shot a few frames, their song fading as they passed.

I entered the park and drove out toward the Bird Island Trail where the work was being completed. On my way I passed a series of amazing vistas which even under the gray, overcast conditions were striking enough to distract me from my mission. I passed Weston Beach, and arrived at the base of the trail.
I had just started out on the trail when California Conservation Corps worker Marcela Medina came up slowly from behind using a mechanized toter to carry granite boulders toward the area where work was taking place. I stopped and shot some frames as she walked above China Cove. "Wow," I said, thinking of the trail workers as much as myself as she passed through my frame. "What a beautiful place to work."
