The Sunday Traveler Celebrates Summer Solstice

dayonthebay1

Today marks Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, and to celebrate, I thought I’d post a few photos taken during a ride across the San Francisco Bay on a ferry. The photos were taken a couple of weeks ago, but it was an extremely warm day for the Bay Area, and felt like summer had arrived.

Yachts racing across the water, blurred by the movement of the racing ferry, trying to make up time to keep on schedule, rewarded me with a few surreal looking photos. The afternoon was a bit surreal anyway in its simple perfection of being there surrounded by that beauty of the bay. It was all good to the last drop as water sloshed and sprayed the windows of the ferry.

      Thank you! It is a compilation of the wet window on the ferry through which I shot the photos, the speed and movement of the boat creating the blur as my hands moved with the boat movement, and then the outside wind on the sails of the boats. I love it when it all seems to work.

    These are cool shots, Angeline! The first one is so much like a water painting, love it.
