Bay Point Marina

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 18 March 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

At dusk on a rainy Sunday. It was eerily calm and quiet. This is a remote spot along Suisun Bay - about 35 miles (56 km) northeast of San Francisco. The large Exxon refinery is a few miles to the left. To the right about 5 miles (8 km) away - are the mouths of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers.

Canon 5D mkII w/ Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 'L' series lens: ISO 250 - at 22mm - f/8.0 - 2.5 seconds

@Jeff: can be. It can also be full of grace and beauty. All we can do is express love - stay balanced - and be ready...

Waters don't get much more still than this. Dusk is a wonderful time of day to shoot.

Mesmerizing. The play of warm v. cool gives this image an other-wordly effect. Excellent toning.

The rich gold tones play against the cool blue tones very well.

The stillness is so beautiful, it seems a place that you could sit there just photographing
ahead like this all night long. Superb.
