    Assignment: Norcal Sunset Photos

    Fall is the season of sunsets. Last week I saw a couple of spectacular ones but I wasn't ready to capture them.

    Your duty now is to capture these sky art shows and share it with the rest of us.

    Dude. Forrest was SO funny! I hope Emily sticks with it! Sorry for the OT...

    I took this one a few years back and have always enjoyed it. Downtown SF from Twin Peaks on one of my night rides with my cross bike.



    edit: Hmm, it didn't like the flickr link.

    You gotta point there. Those are the only two I know who's cameras are more expensive than their bikes.

    Let's see em. Don't by shy.

    The other night my son said. 'Isa, isa... run outside. There is a light show in the sky!' They both ran out and stared. That was a good dad moment for me.

    Hmmm...the only one of mine I could find online, the rest are sitting on my computer at home, this reminds me I should get out with my DSLR more often to take pictures.

    I raced at the event when they were filming that episode. She had a lot of supporters there and was doing great until she got off course and lost. We finished at were going to wait to cheer her at the end. We waited for a long time and finally we decided it was time to go. I haven't seen the episode but as we drove out, she finally appeared. We shouted some encouragement to her form the car and took off. She seemed like a real trooper. Can't wait to see it.

    In Norcal by Norcal!

    Come on you guys. You may as well show a sunset in Paris with the Eiffel Tower and set a bike in front of it. No out of state shots!!

    This is cool. Please date your photos and state your location. We'll assume you're on this planet and that you're taking a photo of the same sun

    It's purdy sweet to see the same sunset from different lenses and settings.

    I didn't take this picture, but it was my idea. Jay had the camera phone, and Dean stitched the two together:



    That was taken on Railroad Grade, Tamalpais on a very nice night.
