I always enjoy seeing photos of boats, though I am not a "boat guy". I don't own a boat, and really have no desire to. But, I appreciate their beauty and find them interesting. Rarely though have I taken photos of a boat or boats, and when I have the shots have been disappointments. So, I found myself at Fisherman's Wharf along the Embarcadero in San Francisco, and it was nearly sunset. I had spent the better part of the day behind the camera, which is always great fun (especially in San Fran) but I was tired and in need of food. I found some place serving fish and chips - image that! - and hunkered down for some refueling. After a bit though I started to notice the subtle changes in the sky and the color and light, and got itchy feet and headed back out to shoot some more. I walked around Fisherman's Wharf for a while, but it is crowded with tourists and I was looking for something a little quieter. I meandered around the backside of the wharf and found this marina, which happens to overlook Alcatraz. It was peaceful and quiet, the sun was setting over distant hills, the light was just right, and it was just me and the camera.
