Mt. Tamalpais: The View from the Top

The view from Mt. Tamalpais is, in my opinion, one of the most inspiring in the world.

I've watched the sun rise over the Himalaya, I've seen it set over the Taj Mahal, I've looked out over Yosemite from the top of Half Dome, but there's nothing that captivates me like the view from Tam.

Last night was clear and still, and a pink sunset hovered over the Bay Area before giving way to a beautiful violet twilight (which is when I shot the image above). I'll share some more pictures soon from the views in the other directions, including Mt. Diablo, the Richmond Bridge, Bolinas Ridge, the Marin Hills, and San Rafael.

Canon 5D, Canon 100-400L, f/11@ 25s, ISO 50. No filters.

Della, you are good. Wow! I have been struggling as a photographer to try and get better and my best doesn't even come close to your worst. I first saw your stuff at and now seeing more here, well, your pictures are jaw dropping!
