This San Francisco skyline photo was captured on one of those stormy days where the clouds just begin to clear at sunset. So there was a really interesting pattern of light in the sky - where the clouds were parting, you can see the lighter blue caused by the setting sun. I just love how there is a spot of light blue above the TransAmerica Building - it almost looks like that spot is caused by the light at the building's pinnacle. This was also a special time of year to photograph the skyline - the Ferry Building was lit up in Red and Green and the 4 buildings in the center of the shot are outlined in lights. This happens only during the Christmas holidays. This photo is also unusually crisp due to the phenomenally-clear weather conditions that evening.
