Photographer's Note

When I saw clouds above my home I quickly dropped everything and jumped in my car, camera in hand. It had been very warm earlier in the day but the temperature had dropped dramatically, signaling a change in the weather. I figured if I headed south toward the Golden Gate Bridge I might catch something worth calling a storm that I could add to the Scavenger Hunt.

As I drove along the freeway I could see the leading edge of the clouds/fog and took an immediate exit, not quite certain where I would find a decent shot. As I drove along the shoreline of Tiburon, overlooking the San Francisco Bay, I discovered what turned out to be a treasure trove of photographic possibilities that would make Olli happy. I forgot the storm in my enthusiam and was soon scrambling over the old construction equipment and debris from the adjacent marina that was being rebuilt. I was freezing in shorts and thin shirt as winds pushing clouds toward me cut through my clothes, but the images were too exciting to forego. At one moment I turned west and saw the image I've posted today. I took a single shot and returned to my scavenging. Only later did I realize this was the shot I'd come looking for in the first place.

The hill in the distance, visible at the tip of the black peninsula, is about half a mile from my home. Enjoy the scene. The shots from the construction yard will come later when I begin what I call an Homage to Olli.
