Very Red Sunset

Photograph of Emeryville sunset with heavy clouds facing the Port of Oakland and Bay BridgeThat’s not fire! Neither is there smoke pouring in from somewhere. That’s just the sun providing a fiery blast of red luminance prior to disappearing beyond the horizon. When I show it to people, they gasp in awe and wonder if this photograph is real. Trust me, I didn’t utilize any post-processing software to capture this moment.

Foggy Shoreline I

Black and white photo of a foggy Emeryville morning along the coastline of Frontage Road

It was a foggy morning in Emeryville. I wanted to attempt black and white photography (learned about high contrast black and white mode on my camera) and the gloomy early day provided the motivation to try it out. I snapped this photograph of the lonely shore.
