There is nothing quite like standing on the edge of a continent looking out at the incredible sunset! I loved the texture of the water and the sun setting out on the horizon. The rocks two-thirds of the way out helps the depth of this image I think. They carry your eye out to the sun and off into the sunset as they say!
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.
