Thank you for the sunset…

a 1

Why, you may well be asking, am I thanking you for this sunset?

Well, let me tell you. It is because I am a naturally lazy person, and if it wasn’t for you, I might not have left my mom’s house last night and driven up into the Berkeley hills to take pictures of the sunset from one of my favorite spots in the world.

And that would have been a shame for both of us.

But because I know you like sunsets, that made all the difference.

This is why blogging is so good for me. Oooh… look… the very last second before the sun vanishes behind the mountains over across the San Francisco Bay!

Well, that and it keeps my head from exploding, and it keeps the crack squirrels up there busy so they don’t chew on the wires.

This just works out well for everybody.

So thanks again.

But I really do need to figure out how to take better pictures at night. I waited until the lights in San Francisco were coming on, but when I use the zoom lens on a long exposure, it never comes out well. I still think it looks cool, though.

    Two ways of taking long exposures at night. And in the day if you can take them with light polluting everything.

    1. Get a tripod. Mount it on that and set it for a timer and a long exposure, click and step back.

    2. If you don’t have a tripod, use a pile of books or rocks or something like that. Arrange them so that the camera doesn’t move and it has a good view of the target area, carefully set it down, set the timer and a long exposure, click and step back.

    These photos are stunning. I love sunsets and sunrises. The beauty they create is unmatched,
