Today, i got off work early, so i decided to hightail it to Mission Peak to get some pix of the sunset that i have been unable to catch...due to the shortening winter days. As it is, my Nikon is still in NY, so i had to settle for the crappy camera on my Blackberry...which surprised even me...it took surprisingly good pictures...that is for a crappy phone camera.
I have been wanting to catch the sunsets for some time now...the cloud structures across the horizon are amazing, and change drastically from day to day. A few weeks ago, i ran up on a normal bright and sunny day, but there was a giant cloud over the peak. I figured that the could would simply cast a long and large shadow over the hill, but it was full on "pea soup" in there.
Having learned from my experiance on "Cloud City," i have since procured a hydration system pack, a head lamp, a fleece long sleeve and a wind breaker...can never be too sure anymore hahaha, i dont enjoy losing the feelin in my fingers...Mt. Fuji was bad enough since it took over 2 hours for the feeling to come back to them.
Today was quite an exception, and many blessings to speak of. Firstly the winds were very calm, and i mean VERY calm. There was almost not even so much as a whisp or a breeze at the top, even after the sun had gone to rest along the Marin headlands. Secondly, the sky was completely clear except for the long finger that extended into the sunset from the north, but even that probably only took up 3% of the total sky...it just sat there, not moving, not spreading itself to the west nor to the east...it just anchored itself for the night...so strange. The bottoms of the clouds light up a bright salmon color...the tops remained white and fluffy. Thirdly, tonight was a full moon!! Well, the calender says that it'll be completely full by tomorrow, but who's gonna fret over a few hours here and there hahahaha.
No moon cakes for BiG tonight though...sigh. No double yolks...sigh. I got some awesome pix of the setting sun though...hopefully you enjoy them too ^^ peas.
