Sky Watch #18


IMG_0005sunset, originally uploaded by airam94564.

Our friends were taking us to this authentic Vietnamese restaurant in the city one evening when while traversing Eastshore Freeway hubs reminded me to take a snap of this beautiful sunset. I was admiring it from the back seat with the camera in my lap without a thought of snapping it. He said this picture would be good for my drive-by series. No drive-by series, sky watch meme it is.

You can see a silhouette of Transamerica Building and Sutro Tower. There's the bay in between me and the city.

BTW, the food was excellent, the company terrific, and the evening was overall wonderful.

For more fantastic sky all over the world, visit this wonderful site.

  1. Sounds like a wonderful outing. I have never eaten Vietnamese food. I'll have to try that some time. I love this shot... the golden yellow and orange striking through the amazingly strewn cirrus... glad hubs nudged you on this one. Well worth holding onto this memory.
