Lands End: At the End of the Day

Lands End might be my favorite place to watch the sunset in San Francisco. The light has a glowing quality from catching the seaspray that is truly beautiful. Add in the drama of the twisted cypresses and the colorful native plants and flowers and you have a backdrop perfect for framing a Pacific sunset.

Summery Stillness, Tiburon Hills I

This is an earlier shot from a glorious summer evening in the Tiburon hills. I think I prefer this composition, and the soft warm light in this image. Marin is magical, and I feel so fortunate to have grown up there.

Summery Stillness, Tiburon Hills

Summer finally busted onto the scene this weekend, with tons of gorgeous, warm sunshine. After a day soaking in the rays, we headed to the Tiburon hills to take in the views. I'm so glad I had my camera with me - the views were phenomenal and we had a gorgeous, still, silent alpenglowy sunset. I feel reinspired :)

I spent a lot of time thinking about my dad yesterday. This photo is for him.
