Temple Entrance

Alviso California is a small town at the southern most point of the San Francisco Bay. A small park sits at the north end of town and it's dotted with these little facades that sit out in the marshland. Many local photographers find them interesting subjects, and at any point of the day, there is usually at least one person walking around them with a camera. After a winter storm passed through the area, I drove out to this park with my camera in hand, and captured this scene. To this day it's one of my favorites. The green grass as the base of the image is a rarity, it's almost always golden brown. The above average winter rains had turned it a mild green. The golden brown marsh grass and the mustard yellow facade stand in the middle of the frame, while dark and mysterious storm clouds hover overhead. A magical picture from a place that people don't even know exists.
