After The Storm

Cold, quiet.

During the week before this photo was taken we had some pretty major storms pass through. Heavy rains, high winds, local flooding in some areas. But by the time I made my way to San Bruno Mountain for my weekly maintenance visit, things had cleared up. There had been freezing overnight in sheltered areas.

I had intended to hit the pier in Pacifica for sunset. Just missed it by about 20 minutes. but the pier and beach were still beautiful in the afterglow slipping over the ocean horizon.

Early Evening At The Beach

A surprisingly un-busy beach.

Since I lack many opportunities to take satisfying photos, I always take a few shots when I visit the beach at Pacifica. I make it a regular side-trip from my weekly visits to San Bruno Mountain. The sun was at just the right angle to give the water a nice blue-green tint. It might have been even better an hour before, but I'll take this.

And speaking of San Bruno Mountain, I could see the Farallon Islands this week. When the weather offshore is clear, the rocky peaks of the islands can be clearly seen from up on the mountain. I'll take a better look next time I'm at Pacifica on a clear day and see if they're visible from sea level.
