Here are a few photos taken right around sunset last night, at Fort Ord National Monument. I was on my regular Wednesday night mountain bike group ride. The light was dimming quickly and the photos were very dark, so I had some fun with filters, cleaning them up to reveal the details.
East Machine Gun Flat, looking over the munitions remediation area. There was a prescribed burn here in October, and it really does look this scorched in person.
Another view of East Machine Gun Flat. The larger oak trees were spared during the burn. The mountain peak in the distance is Toro County Park.
Sunset over the Monterey Bay. Photo taken from Kyle’s bench, at the end of Trail 61.
