Monsoon clouds over San Francisco

Last week on Friday, I couldn't make up my mind where I wanted to go and take photos. In fact, I almost ended up going nowhere due to my indecision.


At around 7:00pm, I noticed that some nice clouds were lining up over San Francisco as a result of the Monsoonal flow, so I raced over to the Marin Headlands and then ran up the trail to Slacker's Ridge to make it in time for sunset.


The clouds lit up with color behind me and to the West. The sky looked like it was on fire, but for some reason, the clouds over the Bridge and San Francisco only picked up some muted colors.


Even though the sky didn't explode with color, I still really like the results I was able to acheive. The high clouds created a really unique pattern in the sky, and San Francisco was cloaked in a low fog. It was a beautiful evening atop the Marin Headlands.
