The Northern Californian Coast


Made it to San Francisco last weekend and took this picture on the way back to San Diego. The coast in the northern part of California is much more dramatic compared to the southern one. I wish I could spend more time there and in San Francisco as well. This city seems to never lose its charm even when it's raining like it did yesterday. More pictures will follow.
Oh, one note about the pink looking sky in this picture. This is not due to my bad taste, it in fact looked like this.

Another note: When you click on an image you will from now on see the image with a width of 1400 instead of 1000 pixels. Once I find the time to edit the design template, I will also increase the thumbnail image size to a width of 900 instead of 680 pixels. I believe this is appreciated, let me know if not. Once I start tinkering on the layout like this, it's usually just a question of time until I do a complete makeover by switching to a new design.

Thank you!

This is fabulous. I love how the sky colors - both the pink & the blue - are mimicked in the ocean. And the clouds over the hills. I got goosebumps.

No idea whether or not this place has light like this on a daily basis. My suspicion is that we were very lucky getting there right at this moment.

your pictures are always so good Oliver !! And that makes me miss San Diego even a bit more.

Oliver said...

Thanks, Etienne.
Greetings to Montreal!

I've been following your blog for some time now. Always interesting images, often spectacular and/or gorgeous, such as this one.

(Though not germane to this photo, let me say I enjoy how you insinuate your "fluck.de" into urbanscapes as graffiti, etc.)

And, yea! Thanks for the larger and therefore even more wonderful images!

Oliver said...

I was thinking of incorporating the fluck.de as a formation of flying birds on the sky, but my guess is it wouldn't be much appreciated :-D
I'll keep the larger images coming, Bosque. Thanks for commenting!

Luminous. Takes me home, as if the 30 years since I lived in NorCal never existed.

Oliver said...

That must be a good thing.
