I was quite tired after flying into Oakland from Texas.  I wanted to get home and be done with the travel schedule.  But, here I was with having to make another quick decision.  A perfect storm was hovering over the City.  The clouds were breaking a bit and the sun was showering some light their way.  So, I quickly decided to get on the Bay bridge and over to Treasure Island where I’d have good unfettered access to the scene.  I was just hoping the clouds would stay parted and there would be enough sunlight shining through to make a difference in the image.  Storms are always so exciting.  It was certainly worth the trip.

I wonder if it’s enjoying the peace and beauty of the setting sun.  Is it full from a busy day?  Has it had its evening meal?  Is it in its home bush or still on its way?  Such questions to be contemplated.  I think I’ll just enjoy the scene for a bit.

So nice in any situation, Austin’s Zilker park is a great place to roam around in.  When you’re with your sweetie and the suns winding its way down and the city gets hugged by the suns late rays… well, life is good.

I know it’s odd, but the San Francisco Yacht Club is not even in San Francisco.  It’s actually across the bay in tiny Belvedere.  I was strolling by one evening as the sun was setting and although there was no light on the boats of the marina I noticed a perfect frame of color and light set against the still approaching darkness that was enveloping the harbor.  It’s the opposite of what I usually look for.  Maybe that’s what drew me in.

Thin clouds low on the horizon.  Sun getting ready to set for the day.  For me, a perfect time to head out to the ocean and take in the splendor of the days goodnight kiss.  I was lucky this day.  It doesn’t always happen with such affection, the color morphing to deep hues of its choosing.  A lovely time to be and take in the mystery.

Sometimes I feel it’s unfair I get to work at a place that offers the views I get to look at.  The sail boats, the sea birds and the sweeping skyscapes that sometimes occur, even in sunny California.  To have it all happen over the recognizable city of San Francisco… just frosting on the cake.

Nothing not to like about Joshua Tree.  It’s so unique and ethereal.  Hanging out one evening, the light and change of colors was so dramatic I was laughing for joy.

It’s spring again!  That yearly marking point and promise of warmer days to come.  At least here in what we call the northern parts of Earth.  Various trees are beginning to flower here in California.  The rain now giving way to blue skies and the suns warmth.  I’m eating plenty of winter’s harvest of oranges now and will patiently wait for the magic of the fruit trees blossoms turning into their juicy offspring of fully developed fruits.

Winter is my favorite time to be at the ocean.  The light, the storms, the quiet beaches bring out the best conditions for photography.  The summer warmth is nice but give me the contrasting muted tones of winter and I’m a happy man.

Alone on the boat.  I can only imagine the freedom and power coming from being alone on the boat, just me and the elements.  Though the sailor here is quite close to the civilized shore, still he gets to work with the wind and water and the numerous feelings that come with mastering the craft.  In San Francisco Bay it’s easy to find many boats in close proximity.  Here, he’s not only alone on the boat, he’s alone on his slice of the bay.
