San Francisco, shot from Yerba Buena Island over the course of 4 hours; picture every 7-15sec.
I decided to do another time lapse of the city from Yerba Buena Island. Last Tuesday a storm was passing by and I thought this might be the perfect setting.
I found a great vantage point right above a cliff in an opening in vegetation after pushing through some trees and underbrush. Since it was a rainy day I brought all my rain gear with me. My rain pants and jacket kept me dry while the camera was wrapped in a transparent vegetable plastic bag from the Berkeley Bowl… All in all it was a pretty wet experience…
As the sun set, I was a bit disappointed as I was hoping again for some more color in the clouds. I was just about to pack up as the city lights slowly became strong enough to illuminate the clouds. I decided to wait a little longer and see what was going to happen. Slowly the clouds started glowing and it almost looked like the city was ablaze. I am no arsonist but the bright orange against the dark blue sky looked beautiful. It got darker and the glowing city with the moving clouds gave the impression of a steaming city. Then the fog started to roll in and the view across the Bay got a little blurry. The mist started to form droplets on the lens and kept me busy cleaning it after every shot. I did this for a while but then grew tiered of it… So I packed up and headed home.
I am really glad I decided to stay longer. I think nightfall saved this time lapse….
I hope you enjoy watching it and please let me know what you think.
