Dusk on the Sound

Commencement Bay – Tacoma, Washington

While visiting the University of Puget Sound in fall of last year we strolled along the water and watched this fisherman enjoying the calm water and warm temperature at dusk.

Arashiyama dusk

Arashiyama (嵐山) just after sunset panorama

Arashiyama is one of the most magical places in the world, and dusk is a magical time of day. I didn’t have my tripod with me on this evening in Kyoto as I had been biking around all day and still had a couple hours of biking ahead of me. So I set my camera on the edge of the famous Togetsu Bridge to take this 2 second exposure at ISO 100 and f/11.

Golden Gate Bridge during the “blue hour”

While taking today’s photo of the Golden Gate Bridge just after sunset I was nearly killed by a “Go Car” driver who hit the accelerator instead of the brake. She ended up crashing into one of the pillars you see in the lower left portion of the photo–the one two down to the right in fact. Had she not hit the post (and she hit it at full speed) she could have ended up over the edge and into the bay, into my car, or into me.

King Street – San Francisco

This 180 degree panorama is a photomerge from a series of 6 ultra wide angle images I took while looking over the edge from the top of AT&T Park. The street heading off to the left and to the right is really the same, straight street with no curve in the road. The distortion is due to the photomerge and the close distance I was to the street. You can’t see this view in real life without turning your head from side to side.

To the far left is the Pacific Ocean and to the far right is the San Francisco Bay. You can see a bit of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge to the right, especially if you click on the image to make it bigger.
