Carquinez Bridge Sunset

A couple nights ago I went to Benicia, California to take some sunset shots.  This is a shot of the Carquinez Bridge which is one of eight bridges in the San Francisco Bay Area.  I’ve included a map of the eight bridges and highlighted the Carquinez with a red rectangle.

I wanted to use my tripod to make a long exposure of the water, but I was too lazy to go back to the car and get it.  Not to mention I had technical difficulties and a lot of the shots were unusable from my SD card.  Not my finest image here, but I thought I’d post it because the sky was just amazing!

Benicia, California

Last night I drove to the town of Benicia, California.   Benicia is a tiny town and surprisingly served as the state capital from 1853-1854.  (The capitol of California is Sacramento.)  Originally I went to get a sunset and while I got some shots, they were not that exciting to me.  I really needed my tripod and was too lazy to go back to the car and get it, so I’m posting this instead.

While I was meandering around I met a really nice lady about my age who was also taking pictures.  We got to talking and the next thing you know we were sitting having a drink and a bowl of chowder.  I really should’ve taken a picture of the blood orange margarita I had…it was quite tasty!
