This image was taken from Sausalito looking out toward Angel Island in the San Francisco Bay area. Myself and Neal headed to the location about 30 minutes before first light which proved to be a good move as this is when I found the light to be at its best for this particular morning. It was still dark so the city lights reflected nicely off the low lying cloud and light fog that was about. We were also hoping for a spectacular sunrise but unfortunately the cloud was too heavy on the horizon.
Luck comes into play in a big way when you only have that one or two days to shoot a particular location. You can do as much research as you like, and have allllll the gear at hand, but having the weather do exactly what you want, when you want just isn’t going to happen. I bet if Jesus was here today and into this whole photography thing he would capture some incredible images.
6 image stitch
This is a 8 image stitch taken at the entrance to Hillarys Boat Harbour.
I have been frustrated with the conditions as of late as has everyone else by the sounds of it. So on Thursday afternoon after having my little kip on the couch I woke up and saw some nice clouds rolling through. I thought “MMMmmMM clouds” and then quickly got my gear together and jumpd in the car. It was looking like the large bank of clouds was heading toward the Marina so I decided to head that way.
I took this shot about 5 minutes after the sun had set. The sky was actually lit up with a pink/purple cast in the easterly direction but I was knackered and figured I would stick with this frame which was shot facing north.
A figure or two walking down the path would have been nice…. and maybe a beam of light from the lighthouse. 🙂
I took this on Friday morning. I also managed to get a fair few shots in after work on Friday but I’m yet to go through them. Hopefully they stitch together alright.
