Rare Skywatching Outing


I've been playing Skywatch for at least 5 years now. The first three years had been prolific in producing skywatch shots because I would often go out on photo walks specifically to capture cloudscapes. The last two however had seen rarer and fewer outings designed with the sole purpose of capturing the beauty of the sky.

Thus, when I was browsing through my albums and saw these photos I remembered that this was just one of the only two outings we took to skywatch last year.

I remember our destination was the at Miller-Knox Regional Shoreline, a place where I have enjoyed and captured beautiful sunsets previously. However, the tunnel that connects the shoreline to downtown Point Richmond was closed for repair and so we followed the detour signs. I didn't know there is another way to get there, more scenic albeit longer.



Coming from the other way the Bay Bridge was visible.



Always something new to discover in the bay area.



We passed by a marina.



The light started changing. There is something about a marina that appeals to a non-swimmer, non-sailor in me.



And as the time was coming we took our favorite spot by the cliff and watched the sunset.


Pink/peach clouds and the outline of Mt. Tamalpais.



Memo to self - take more sunset/skywatch outings in 2014.

SKYWATCH is a weekly gathering of sky lovers and sky watchers. Join us.
