Nice shot. I grew up (until I was seven) in the shadow of Mt. Tamalpias. It, Muir Woods, and Stinson Beach were my playgrounds.
 
Holy smokes, Mark. *That indeed is a fire in the sky. *We had some pretty weird weather here in Key Biscayne at sunset that had downtown workers rushing to the windows to get photos of. *Here in Key Biscayne, I took these photos only about 10 minutes apart, one looking east over our house where a wisp of a rainbow appeared when the sun cracked though a heavy cloud cover in the west. *A few minutes later, the sun dove below the horizon, and I shot this looking west. *Last three nights have been cold.

Fantastic photo's guys, maybe we could put up a TF photo page. Say, landscape only , no people(except for the occasional feet), max one line of text just describing where, when & time taken.

Just a thought.

Not really fire in the sky but some pretty skies nevertheless.

All of these are somewhere on the CA Delta...

This photo was taken on Mildred Island on the same trip as my avatar photo.

My friend and I were out in our dinghies with the Admirals as the sun began to set.* I had been teasing him all week because he hadn't had a chance to wash his boat before our week on the water and I had mine waxed.* When we looked back at the boats, this is what we saw...

img_70935_1_d6ae39f23a6bf1a05375d8c103aae273.jpg


Of course, I had to rib him about how he should have waxed his boat!* From the dinghies, we couldn't figure out why his boat was so gray while mine glowed red.* When we got back to the boats, we found that there was a single, solitary bush or tree on the levee casting a shadow across his boat!* 20 feet left or right, he would have been in the light!

My My winter view in Yuma, AZ:

Not taken on the boat, but fire in the sky it is. It was the beginning of a thunderstorm in Memphis last spring

OK, I am a little color challenged.

This Sunset Image was taken late Summer returning to our Slip in Toms River NJ.

The sky lit up so bright I had to grab my camera.

That's a great shot, Eric. I would think it would be a very difficult place to leave once one was there and established. Sure looks like it beats Seattle.....
