Sunset was drawing nigh… I was sitting in my mom’s living room, where I am sitting now as I type this, trying to decide if the sunset would be worth taking pictures of from my favorite view spot way up in the Berkeley hills. The view from her deck was pretty, as you can see from these pictures.
On an evening like this, where the cloud layer is low, you can either get a great sunset from higher up, or not much of a sunset at all. But I figured, my time in the Bay Area is running short… I am leaving early tomorrow… and this was last night, if you care.
I decided to just drive up there and check it out. At first, although San Francisco was, as always, lovely to look at, the sunset didn’t hold too much promise.
It was hazy, and visibility wasn’t that good.
The colors were muted, and didn’t even show off the Golden Gate all that well.
But sometimes, the sun does marvelous things as it passes between the higher clouds and the distant mountains.
Yes, clouds can be a help or a hindrance when it comes to sunsets.
And you never know what will happen. I have a few more pictures of this sunset to post.
