And There was a Light

On our first day in California we saw sun light two times. Sunset and sunrise. At sunset we were at the Point Reyes, sunrise we decided to see over San Francisco Bay with Golden Gate Bridge in front of us. Most of the sunrise was not a big event, as you can see clouds were all over the sky, but there was a little break on the horizon with sun picking out couple times as it went up. Then for about 1-2 minutes we were enlightened with this view.

    Great light mood! I love San Francisco and I will come back one day (currently planning for 2014). I still remember that week in 2010. From my point of view SF definitely is the most European city in the U.S.

  6. A famous War Photographer used to describe this type of light as ‘Gods Fingers’……heavenly light it is!

    My second comment on this picture :-). This picture made me go through our travel report on U.S.A. South-West and looking at the pictures over and over again. I hope you don’t mind, if I share the link: The travel report is in German, sorry for this, but the pictures on the last page speak for themselves.

      Hi, if you want to see camera settings on any of my photos, all you have to do is click on the image which will take you to my photo gallery at, then go into the gallery, point to photo on the right side and you’ll see little dialog box, click on little blue ‘i”, it will show photo information. This photo shows F/5.6, ISO 200, 70 mm.

      • Thanks for the info. I took a look at your smugmug site as well. I am considering getting a site through them, so thanks also for your comments about that on the Bond 45 post. I loved the color in that shot as well.
