After Dark…

Copyright ©2016 Deborah M. Zajac. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

I went out with one of my photography groups to do a little night photography Saturday evening.

After the sun went down Middle Harbor Shoreline’s park security drove by announcing the park was closed it was time to leave so, several of us headed to another park that stayed opened a few hours longer.  This is one image I made while waiting for the Crescent Moon to sink lower into the city skyline.

Bay Bridge East Span Pedestrian Bicycle Path

What you’re looking at is the Oakland/San Francisco Bay Bridge East Span Pedestrian-Bicycle path in front, mid ground are the tops of the Bay Bridge, and behind that are the two new high rises in the process of being built. The tallest is the new Salesforce Tower. It will be the tallest building in San Francisco, and will be the second tallest building west of the Mississippi when complete.  At its completion it will stand 1,070 ft (326 m) tall and be the center piece of the Transbay Transit Center in downtown San Francisco.

The Wilshire Grand Center building located in Los Angeles is the tallest skyscraper in California.

The other skyscraper you see with cranes is going to be the new Transbay Tower…I think.

Someone let me know if I’m wrong please.

Over on the right by itself is the Trans America Building; a shining beacon in the night.

  1. Reflections, lights, lines, bridges and cranes! This is a wonderful photo, Deborah and it certainly pushed all of my buttons. On top of that, you included a very nice description – well done! I love the colors in the reflections.

    1. Thank you so much for this lovely comment Dan! I’m very glad you like the image despite the cranes being so teeny. 🙂
      I agree about the colors of the lights looking great reflected in the water. I love them too.

  2. This is great. I like the thought that several of the group stayed at Middle Harbor Shoreline Park and have photos of an angry security man approaching them with a big stick. And bigger dog who’s teeth look large whether you zoom in or not. You did the right thing leaving as the photograph proves. 🙂

    1. LOL! I’ve had that happen once or twice. SHHH don’t tell! 🙂

      By the looks of the group photo album there was one or two that pushed it and stayed later than security probably liked. The danger there is getting you car locked in with no way out til morning which is why I left. 🙂

      Thanks so much for the comment and chuckle Phil!
