The sun, the moon, the fog and the city…

Okay, here they are, the last photos from my drive up into the hills above Berkeley, California, to watch the sun set last night.

I also took a few photos of the moon. I think they came out pretty good considering I didn’t have a tripod. I just steadied the camera on the top of my car. I had no idea the zoom lens was that good. I mean, the photos get saved really big, and I cropped the photo all the way down… but you can see craters!

The fog did play a huge part in these pictures.

And so did the clouds… and that contrail or whatever it was. But there was, as I mentioned in an earlier post, more than one kind of fog blowing around last night.

There was a low, coastal fog, that obscured San Francisco, and blew in front of the setting sun…

It mingled with the clouds and added depth to the photos…

But when I drove just a little higher up into the hills, I drove into more fog…

Okay, I don’t actually know if this is high fog or low clouds…

But whichever it was, it didn’t help the sunset any,

One more gratuitous picture of the moon.

    If the people in the Middle Ages had your camera, they’d figure out that the Moon wasn’t flat way back then.
    The hard part would have been the part where they get your camera.

    These photos are terrific! Thank you for sharing them.

  3. The sun, the moon, the fog and the city…sounds like the title to a great romance novel! Or a cheap horror flick. BTW, Art, whenever you look up into the night sky and see the moon, Venus and other celestial bodies, do you get homesick? I know I do.
