SkyWatch #53


IMG_0300, originally uploaded by M'roy.

Our neighbors up north (Seattle and Portland) have been experiencing HOT weather in the upper 90s and 106 for Portland yesterday according to the news, our little bay area region is around 10 degrees below normal temps, cool and breezy.

This picture was taken on Memorial Day of 2009, but I thought it was a good example of what I see on my commute to and from work every day.

Would you like to hazard a guess as to what span is featured in the background covered in our famous fog?

SKYWATCH is a weekly gathering of sky lovers and sky watchers all over the globe. Please join us.

  1. The heat went up north. Our temp here has gone down from 100 deg. to the high 80's.

    Was that the Golden Gate Bridge?

  2. Hmmm...that looks like the Golden Gate Bridge right there. Am I correct? That's a superb silvery shot of the water!

  6. The fogged in bridge makes a fine background for the sailboats. The choppy water gives the impression of considerable wind. Fine shot.

  14. Even shrouded in fog the Golden Gate Bride is wonderful. I love the shimmer you have captured on the water.

  15. Oh, I love this! The sparkling sun on the water and the sailboats...they are so tiny in the grand scheme of things. Beautiful color, too!

  16. Lovely shot though, I like the contrast of the sun on the sea-with the sea fog over the bridge. Thanks for sharing:)

  17. I have been there, seen the fog (even bought a T-shirt) - and lost a whole roll of film exposed on a day the fog wasn't there and the span was visible in all its beauty :-(

  26. I like the contrast of the choppy water with the smooth fog. The sails kind of look like glass, very pretty image.

  27. The fog makes the water appear silvery here. Nice photo!

    ReplyDelete
  28. This is really beautiful. Tone on tone on tone of silver and gray. With the barely perceptible bridge span in the back. Great!

    ReplyDelete
  29. You get a great view on your commute to work..fog or not...

    I've no idea what bridge lies beyond...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Great view for a commute even with the fog, you did manage to capture a lot of the play of light across the water. Looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  31. That is a fabulous shot of the sail boats with the foggy back drop hiding what appears to be, yes I'm sure is, the world renowned 'Golden Gate Bridge'. It does like to hide in the infamous San Fran. fog...

    ReplyDelete
  32. Great photo...I love the sparkling water...I would love to have this commute...

    ReplyDelete
  33. How the sailboats look minute floating on the silver sea riding about the fog and the shrouded bridge. A captivating photo of your place.

  36. Very lovely snap. The water looks silvery because of the beautiful sky.

    ReplyDelete
  37. The water look as though there are millions of diamonds sparkling at the same time :)

  38. Beautiful seascape, almost like a B&W picture.
    Love the backlighting glitters and waves.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love the silvery sparkles on the surface of the water. Great photo effect here.

    (Newlyweds had only one day honeymoon due to the workload of the groom. However, there is a big holiday coming for them to make up for that.)
