While walking the raccoon trail at Metea Park, I took this portrait of Bob Dispenza, Park & Education Manager. I used the light shining through the trees to light Bob and shot wide to include the environment because one of the points that Bob wanted to get across was that he wanted people to come out to these trails and appreciate nature.
If you look closely, you can almost see two kids running down the trail in the background. That was one of those lucky moments I didn't notice until I was back in the office, editing.
