It seems nearly ludicrous to be posting this now - I just didn't have time to attend to it last week when it was taken. It is sunny and cloudless and very warm in San Francisco this Memorial Day Weekend.
We've had a most unusual wet season this year. Normally, it is dry along the central and southern California coast after the first of April. This year the rains have continued all the way through May.
I was driving home on the Bay Bridge last Wednesday. Another wet storm was blowing in from the northwest. It was windy and cold. It was just before sundown and the traffic was miserable. My view was that standing in the wind and cold with the camera and tripod would be better than inching along the lower deck of The Bay Bridge - and so the exit onto Treasure Island in the middle of the bay. I was rewarded - not only with this image - but also with the ciumstance that by the time I climbed back up to the bridge - the traffic had opened up and was moving near the speed limit - hooray!
