San Francisco Daze

I took this photo from the top of Twin Peaks in San Francisco. The moon rising is a full moon at lunar perigee, and it's also the largest moon of 2009. The sun is still setting behind me, as you can see the light hitting the tops of the buildings. It was a crisp and windy night on top of that hill, and I actually didn't know anything about this lunar perigee business until I got up there and met a South African photographer who had come just for the shot. I guess the REAL money shot would have been from the Marin Headlands with a telescope since the night was so clear.

Still working on my S.F. blog. I'll begin the posts this weekend and hopefully get it wrapped up by mid-week.
