When I chose Crocker Park for my spot to capture the great light formed by storms to the north and south of us, I kept in mind that the actual sunset to the west might put on a nice show as well. As such, I kept running back up from near the float to check on the cloud cover towards Abbot Hall.  While that area never ‘popped’, I spotted this arc of light behind the weathered benches at Crocker Park.

I had never found a good composition for these benches before but here they seem to shine with the backlighting and perfect green foliage above the textured cliff face.
