I've got more.  But tired.  Here's one I really love.

At the recommendation of Mrsr58, Bob and I took the time to go the Mission District early Saturday afternoon.   It was a very interesting to walk through the streets and alleys and see all the artwork.

Slowing working through photos from the SF trip.  Our hotel, the Serano, was in the Theatre district and just a couple blocks away from Union Square.  We were on the top floor (17th floor) with a corner room that had fantastic views.  I took these photos on the evening when we arrived.  The sunset was fantastic.

Here is an HDR photo merge of 11 photos taken without a tripod from our hotel window of the sunset over San Francisco.  HDR is not everyone's cup of tea, but I wanted to play.  You can see all the weird reflections from the hotel window as well as the camera lens from the intense sunset, which was amazing.  I have non-HDR versions as well, but as I said, I wanted to play.

Bed now, methinks.

We arrived back home this afternoon from our 25th wedding anniversary trip to San Francisco.  I'm very tired. We had a wonderful time.  More details later.  I wasn't going to look through the photos I took since I was so tired.  But that didn't last long.  I have to go to work early tomorrow so I really need to stop.  I haven't even finished transferring the files from my camera.  I'm a bit overwhelmed by all the great photos.  It's been a long time since I've been so inspired by a trip.  I think even Hawaii did not inspire me as much as this trip.

Yesterday late afternoon Bob and I were driving through a water bird marshland as the sun was starting to go down.   Here is a random sample of what we saw.  This is a pelican caught in flight with the setting sun shining from behind.  You can see pellets of water falling off the pelican as he had just dove into the water to catch something.   Click to enlarge.



When I got to some images of snowy egrets fishing in the marsh with colors ranging from magentas to oranges to blues to greens.  I had to stop.  I just didn't even know what to do, the images overwhelmed me so much.
