The sunset chronicles… part 1…

a 1

It’s no secret that I like sunsets. Long ago, on this very blog, I tried to do a thing where I took a photo of the sunset every night for a year, and posted them, once a week, as ‘sunset Sundays’ or something like that. I would have actually done it, if I lived where you could see the sunset past the houses and overhead wires… and if the crack squirrels in my head hadn’t gotten bored.

So last night, I drove, once again, to my favorite spot in the hills above Berkeley, overlooking the San Francisco Bay.

I brought the good camera, the telephoto lens, and the cheap tripod I bought at a rummage sale.

Then, I just hung out for like three hours, taking pictures.

It wasn’t great visibility… which doesn’t necessarily mean a bad sunset, as you can tell from the first photo in the post.

It was hazy, and the fog was rolling in.

So I wasn’t sure how the pictures would turn out… did you spot the iconic bridge lurking in the mist in that picture?

I also played around with some photos of a fountain… hey, it can’t all be about the sunset, can it?

I was trying to get a perfect shot of San Francisco behind the splashing water, but they aren’t quite as cool as I was hoping they would be.

  1. Tripods are great. More people should invest in one instead of those selfie sticks.

    • I still have trouble with camera shake, as you will see from the last pictures, after darkness fell… holy crap… after darkness fell… that is the new name of the princess book, not The Princess Rebellion…
