Antonio the Explorer
Journey To
Joaquin Miller Park - 2008 n 2009

         Where is and what is Joaquin Miller Park ?


 Journey into Paradise by Anthony M. Benjamin Sr.

         In my opinion Joaquin Miller Park is one of the prettiest parks
         on the planet earth.
        
         Part of what makes the Joaquin Miller Park so special is it a park
         made into side of a mountain full of Redwood Trees !
        
         Joaquin Miller Park is a big park in the northern hills of Oakland, CA.
        
         While many of the visitors love the park for its hiking and running trails,
         in my opinion what makes this park so special is

         (01) its huge outdoor ampitheater !
         (02) its series of cascading ponds with sky blue water !
         (03) its long and narrow downhill stream
         (04) its steps for walking and jogging
         (05) its collections of big and small waterfalls
         (06) its giant water fountains and ponds
         (07) its views of the san francisco bay and oakland.
        
        

 Journey into Paradise by Anthony M. Benjamin Sr.


         My love affair with Joaquin Miller Park began with a visit to the park
         to attend a free music concert, Sunday in the Redwoods.

         while the free music I listened to at the park was good, what got me
         excited about Joaquin Miller Park was it series of perfectly manicure
         ponds, streams, waterfalls, water fountains and shrubbery behinds
         the park one of a kind amphitheater.


 Journey into Paradise by Anthony M. Benjamin Sr.


         I discovered the Joaquin Miller Parks unique ponds, stream and
         waterfalls by accident.
        
         Exploring a dining area near the stage area of the amphitheater,
         I looked over the rear wall and seen the most prettiest series of
         cascading ponds with glimmering blue water I ever seen in my life.

         The first digital image in my collection of picture in this blog
         is a partial vision of what I seen when I looked over the back wall
         of the amphitheater.
        
         Thou I tried to take several pictures of cascading pond from the
         rear wall of the amphitheater, the angle of the ponds, the
         reflection of sunlight and the limitations of my low resolution
         cell phone camera stopped me from capturing the beautiful images
         I seen with my eyes.

         just as curiosity took me to the rear wall of the amphitheater and
         base of the cascading ponds, curiosity made follow the stream that
         emptied out of the ponds down the hill.
        
         like so many of my other pictures, I was unable to capture the
         details of the water moving down the hill.

        
         the pictures of the streams and ponds I took on this sunday
         afternoon was on a sunny day; my next visit to the park should be
         on a cloudy day so I do not have to deal with so much reflection.

         being unable to take the pictures of the cascading ponds I wanted
         from the top wall of the amphitheater, I decided go down on the
         ground near the pond base to try my luck taking pictures there.
        
         while the pictures I took of cascading ponds base were okay,
         because the ponds were located on a steep hill with a river in its
         center, I was unable to capture the pictures that shown the true
         ponds, just like what happened on the top wall of the amphitheater.
        
         in many ways sad with my pictures of the cascading pond, I am
         grateful I got to show pictures of the blueness of the water and
         the refreshing feel of the water moving and running over the sides
         of the wall.
