a moody sun and clouds and water

From this vantage point on my beloved Mount Tamalpais the sea becomes a large canvas for the often impressive light show by sun and clouds.

This image has just a tiny bit of streaming sunlight coming through the base of the clouds but I wish it had been a bit more dramatic.

I suppose this shot could have also been a lot more dramatic with more streaming sunlight.   I am almost tempted to see if I can Photoshop some streams of light into the image, but I guess that would be cheating.   I'll just keep it on the understated side.

This (above) is East Marin Island (big) and West Marin Island (small) near San Rafael in San Pablo Bay (the upper thumb of San Francisco Bay).

Sun, clouds and water -- all teaming up here, I think, for a rather moody shot.

When I saw that one yesterday I wasn't sure if I was looking at clouds or water. Now with a closer look I can see the waves in the water so it is apparent that I am seeing clouds reflected in water. I like the little bit of mist surrounding the islands and the overall softness.

That bottom image is really something different. Very cool shot Donald.
