    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...
    Stupid, but sometimes witty. Occasionally brilliant. Slow and fat though.

    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.

    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.

    I slept with 3 women those nights. I had two Big Agnes's with me as well as my fiance Heather. We stayed cozy warm and Heather and I stayed on top all night long. (for those that don't know a Big Agnes is a air mattress.)

    Dang cars keep sneaking into the photos

    Finally found one with no cars ruining the scenery.

    Sunset viewed from the summit of Haleakala


    Camera batteries had died after shooting so many tourist photos that day, so I had to use my crackberry camera.

    Wait..no Toyotas..WTH?? FC..want to come over and take a quick shot around the entrance to Kennedy of the 2011 Camry before Sundown tomorrow since I have one on loan until Wednesday?

    Pm me if it is a "Yes!" it's the silver sport packaged one w/ mags, though only the 2.5 2ar-fe/6speed auto it's a blast to drive and actually handles powerful enough. I'm afraid to ask to borrow the 3.5l.

    That looks like you took a photo of SV from HWY 9 while the burbs were covered with clouds.

    Typically that is more of an AM deal so maybe this is a sunrise shot?

    After this Saturday's trail construction day in Coe, I took a ride and lingered near Coit Lake to capture wildlife and on the ridge tops for a view of the sunset. I put these photos in the thread which is here: Henry W Coe Trail Work 2nd Saturday Oct. 9 Hoover Lake (Iguana)

    Here's just one of the sunset shots taken from "Bovine" trail:

    Here you go. Mr. carboy Derek actually had a good sunset photo but it was hiding. I cropped one of his vw photos. Too bad he doesn't have a solo of just the background.

    I don't suppose you have a full shot size of that do you because I wish I could find the one of me and some friends from Lafayette sitting in that exact spot around this exact date some years ago huddled up next to a huge Ford 4x4 trying to decide whether to descend or not with snow pouring down on us.

    We did descend, and when we rolled back into town the barkeep let us walk right in dripping and shivering as she dished out the tequila shots smiling the whole time.

    sunrise at Embarcadero this morning

    8am meet up with BSSparky to ride over the bridge and hills to Biketoberfest. Was about 15 minutes in front of him, so found a spot to sit and enjoy the morning before he arrived.


    Not a minute had passed after I snapped this shot when someone popped up from behind that low wall, facing the sun. Looking around, it was safe to say that she'd been sleeping on the grass against the wall. Not a second after that, she stretched facing the sun, dropped her drawers and squatted right then and there not 20 feet away. ["****... C'mon, hurry up Mat..."] Shortly after, she stood up, pulled her drawers up, and proceeded to rifle through the nearest trash can. -- "Argh... get me the F outta here." What a depressing place Market St and the surrounding area can be.

    Later that day, got my junk stung by a bee near Lagunitas. Man, that'll get your attention really quick. Thankfully, not allergic.
    Every rose has it's thorn.

    enjoy the ear worm

    Another sunrise from last weekend, not as spectacular as FP's, but it was the most beautiful thing at the time as we were 5 hours into our 16 hour attempt at a Henry Coe century (credit ElHombre for the photo)

    Little Pine Mountain to Upper Oso

    Being inside the cloud covering Little Pine Mountain obscured my sense of actual time. This is the scene that greeted me when I dropped below the cloud layer. Time was 4:32pm in December. Sunset was 4:48pm.

    There was much more light than this image suggests. Spot metering on the sunlight in the distance allowed me to capture this image.

    Santa Barbara, California.

    Green Flash

    The green flash is always something I've wanted to see, and I caught one in the fleeting moments of sunset yesterday. Not a huge green flash, but I'll take it! Here's the wikipedia page on the topic: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_flash
