Long, Slow, Passionate Kisses

"Autumn is the eternal corrective. It is ripeness and color and a time of maturity; but it is also breadth, and depth and distance. What man can stand with autumn on a hilltop and fail to see the span of his world and the meaning of the rolling hills that reach to the far horizon?"

-Hal Borland

Last night, I thought it might be nice to try and capture a nice photograph of San Francisco, as seen from up here in the East Bay hills. All the buildings on the Embarcadero
are decorated for the holiday season, and it is absolutely gorgeous, however, it wasn't to be. That old San Francisco fog was determined to blot out the view of the city, so I decided instead to focus on one of the last sunsets of November. I aimed my camera toward the sun, and watched as it slowly and passionately kissed the sky goodnight. :) Kisses like that should always be slow... don't you think? :)

Then just a little while later...
