Two Bridges

Two Bridges

Our last image of the tour of the Newark Slough.  This is one more view of the footbridge with the Dumbarton Bridge off in the distance, lit up by the morning sun.  The water in the foreground is not the bay, but the marshland next to the bay.  Off in the distance you can see the power lines and the Santa Cruz Mountains.

Okay, lets take a break from the islands and enjoy one more sunrise from the Newark Slough.  Don’t worry, we’ll get back to Maui soon enough.

This image is one that was fraught with user-error in the taking, and yet ended up pretty decent.  I had the camera setup on some long exposures in bracketing mode. As I was setting up for the shot, the sky was lighting up with brilliant oranges and I accidentally hit the shutter.  30 seconds to wait for it to finish?  I don’t think so.  Off went the camera.  Back on, change settings and finish.  Unfortunately the brillance faded to some degree before I could shoot again.  Overall, I think it turned out pretty decent.
