Although in my opinion, the Patterson monument is a strange find on a quiet road bordering a park, we frequently go and sit there in the summer because of the view of a golf course that is visible from it. It’s beautiful in the winter, as well–especially on a rare sunny day. Then the stark outlines of trees and their shadows stand out against undulating shades of green grass and gold sand traps.
On this day, a lone golfer had decided to put the warmth of the sunlight to the test.
My favorite view from this perspective, however, was the lone golden-green leafed tree. It, and its full shadow, stood as a graceful contrast to the bare trees around it.
