Another California sunset

View from the Eastshore freeway looking across the bay toward downtown San Francisco and the Bay Bridge. The triangular spire of the TransAmerica building is in the background.

Why do the best sunset views always happen when I am driving in a car somewhere?

This was an experiment in capturing images from a car traveling at 60+ mph, using the P setting on the camera at ISO 1600.  Highly recommended by a bird photography enthusiast for taking photos from a moving vehicle.  It works!

  1. Nice catch, especially for a drive by shooting. ;). I recently read an article arguing that by eschewing auto, advanced photographers are actually depriving themselves of a useful technique.

    • How interesting. I have seen many a noteworthy landscape that I wished I had pulled over to photograph, and been too shy to try taking from the moving vehicle. This times, however, the light was just too dramatic to resist.
