Blowing in the Golden Gate

When the clouds blow in the Golden Gate (which is often) and when there’s also a blue sky over the Bay (which is sometimes), then there will be a spectacular show at sunset.

To witness yesterday’s show, I started at the Inspiration Point parking lot at about 5PM and hiked to Wildcat Peak. I had a book with me, and read for a while until the performance started to move quickly. Within minutes after this shot, the sun had set and the Golden Gate was hidden in an inpenetrable layer of fog.
