Lake Chabot and a Sunset (2 images)

I went up to Fairmont Ridge with my camera club a few days ago and the sunset was just stunning!   For this post, I’m including two photos.  Please click on the blog to see both images.  Thank you!

Picture 1:  Lake Chabot – Looking east from Fairmont Ridge at Lake Chabot (named after Anthony Chabot…detail below) which is a reservoir serving the East Bay in the San Francisco Bay Area.  You can see Mt. Diablo in the distance which is the Bay Area’s tallest peak at 3,848 feet.

Picture 2:  Sunset over the SF Bay – Looking west from Fairmont Ridge over the SF Bay.

If you haven’t heard of Anthony Chabot, he was quite the forward thinker, and there are many places in the East Bay named after him.  If you like you can read more about him here in this Wiki.

  1. Lovely shot Laura, maybe it’s just me, but I can’t see the sunset??????????

  2. I love the color and lighting/exposure for Lake Chabot.

  3. S P E C T A C U L A R !!! Bravo, Laura!!!

  4. Gorgeous. You are incredibly talented!

  5. Really nice images, Laura. I like them both.

  6. Reblogged this on Abstract Art by Sharon Cummings and commented:
    Absolutely stunning #photography Laura!

  7. Absolutely wonderful. Your sunset over the Bay is dazzling. Thank-you so much for sharing, I’m really glad I stopped by. See you again soon. Oh, just a humorous aside. I’m not sure why you call me Mitch, and I’ve never bothered to correct you because I like to think I’m pretty much an easy-going guy. But just so you know (and I haven’t been offended or annoyed at all), my name is David.

  8. Stunning images! I particularly love the nature’s color palette on the first one.
