Sausalito at Twilight

This is a photograph of Sausalito and Tiburon from across the Bay as night came on. It is a view of scenic and almost Mediterranean Sausalito that a tourist probably wouldn’t see.

I took the photo from the top of Wildcat Peak, using a telephoto lens, and a thirty second exposure with the lens wide open.

As usual with this kind of long exposure in low light conditions, the digital sensor picked up colors that I didn’t even know were there, like the sunset reflecting off the mist on the water in the bottom left of the photo.

    Great photo.

    I’ve been up to the Bay Area once and I’d love to move/work there when I’m out of school.

    What ISO did you take this at?

    This was ISO 100. Here’s the EXIF data.
