Backlit Tree at Pierce Point Vista

We went to Pierce Point in the Point Reyes National Seashore in the afternoon.  The sun was shining and the visibility was excellent, a welcomed change from the usual weather for the locals.  There were a few huge trees on rounded hills above the sea and the vistas were gorgeous.  Although there were many tempting scenes to paint, I liked the way the sun shone through this tree and the shadow it cast on the ground. 

This is a pastel and gouache sketch on black paper.
