"Mt Tamalpais Sunset"
Location: Mt. Tamalpais, San Francisco, California.

There is nothing better than being on a quiet hillside watching sunset. Fortunately, not far from where I stay, Mt. Tamalpais in San Francisco offers such a vantage point. So when the lighting conditions were just right I decided to capture this view forever.

Tech Info and Tip:
Lens: Canon 17-40mm f/4L @40mm
Camera: Canon 5D Mk II
Exposure: 6/10sec at f/13 and ISO 200
Filters: SinghRay 2 stop hard edge and 3 stop hard edge ND filters stacked together

The grass is green for a very short time of the year. But golden grass on the hills look equally good. I am hoping to return to this spot again next year and try some of those shots.

San Francisco is a busy metropolitan area but just a few miles to the north exists a place so quiet and unique that it is such a perfect escape from the chaos of the city life. Mt. Tam, as it is locally know, is a perfect vantage point to watch the summer fog rolling into the bay or just enjoy the hike on its undulating hills and redwood forests.
