2011, Day 274 - Whisps

Some evening you can see a sunset coming and can't quite move fast enough.  The window of opportunity for a long exposure to capture a sunset is measured in minutes, the light changes so quickly that if you aren't ready you end up relying more on luck to get a good exposure; planning always helps but only when the conditions cooperate.

I took this earlier in the week, I had to pick up a friend to run an errand and even though we were set to be early I begged her indulgence to stop and take a few pictures of the skyline as the sun drifted lower and highlighted the amazing clouds.  I never get tired of looking at the Hawthorne Bridge and I like how this vantage point has the counter-weights for the drawbridge framing the office building in the distance.
