Laura Macky Photography

Journey of a body on this earth

From Above


Last night I went with my camera club for a “sunset” at the Berkeley Marina.  Unfortunately we weren’t provided with the opportunity for beautiful orangey sunsets but we were provided with some amazing rays of sunshine coming from an open area in the fog and clouds.  It was really spectacular!  I hope I did it justice.

  15. Oh the light! Those moments are breathtaking when we see them in person but to capture it…well, you deserve a huge high-five! Awesome. The sailboat gives such a presence to this image as well, in scale and beautiful lines and that spotlight of sunlight is beautiful. I love this way more than a sunset!

    • High-five back Carrie! I’m so glad you enjoyed this image. I had fun taking it that’s for sure. I got all giddy when I came through the tunnel and saw the heavens opening up over the bay! 😀
