San Mateo County Parks – Coyote Point and Flood

This week I finished – at least the first pass – my project to photograph all the San Mateo County Parks. I visited all 20 parks taking over 2200 frames during my visits. The project took just a few days over a year. Did I exhaust the photographic possibilities for the Parks? Not even close. Just as an example, I’ve spent a lot of time at Coyote Point. Most of it out in the bay windsurfing. But I don’t have a single picture of someone windsurfing at Coyote. So, that may be something I’ll add in the coming weeks.

The last two parks I visited were Coyote and Flood Park. Flood Park is located in Menlo Park. While it’s popular on week-ends with picnickers and ball players, it tends to be unused on week-days. Flood also serves as the headquarters for the San Mateo County Parks Foundation for which I work as a volunteer webmaster. I find the oak trees be impressive. There was also a Great Blue Heron hanging out in the park while I was there. See a few shots from my visit here.

Coyote is really two places; the park, which contains the Curiodyssey museum and extensive picnic areas, and the Marina, a popular spot to moor your sailboat. You can some of my shots from Coyote here.

And, yes, thanks for asking, I do have some more ideas for new projects. You will have to stay tuned to see what I do next. Meanwhile, I’ll be reorganizing my San Mateo Parks Gallery on REZPhotography.
