September left with a bag! What a display of red and orange colors tonight as the sun was setting. It looks like the sky is on fire. The display lasted for about 10 minutes.
After some delays the city did find the funding needed to have its own eBART Station, which will between Railroad Ave and Haubor St. Interesting enough, the entrances will be from both side of the Railroad Bridge. There is no delegated property with parking lot and entrance building with a overpass to the tracks as for the North Concord, Bay Point/Pittsburg and Hillcrest Stations.
Spend the morning on the Delta with my 500mm Minolta Reflex Lens. I was hoping to catch some shoots of the Wind Farm, but the air was not as clear as I thought it would be. Guess the heat over the last few days has not totally cleared out. I was lucky to come across some boat traffic to use as my subjects..
For the last few nights we got some great eveing sky colors, I finally decided on Saturday to catch those colors. On Sunday we had another great display of these colorful evening clouds, so in preparation for the Super Moon Eclipse, I took some more photos. I was hoping the clouds would cleared to catch the Eclipse, but no such luck this time around. Lucky I took those earlier photos.
This is the third day in a row of great sunrises that produce great colors under different circumstances. Today we have a nice display of the sunrise underneath some higher clouds, again some great colors.
For the second day we are seeing some great colors as the sun rises. Today’s display is due to the high overacted sky and warmer air moving in. Enjoy!
Today is the first day of fall/autumn and thanks to the cool air this early morning I was able to catch these few photos of the first sunrise of the new fall season.
Stopped at Downtown Byron this morning for a few photos of the old Main Street and the very busy intersection of Byron Highway and Camino Diablo. If it were not for the shortcut traffic this part of the town would be dead. Byron Hwy connects to Interstate 205 which connects to I-580 West and I-5 North, and via Mountain House Road to I-580 East and I-5 South.
If you liked Blues than Downtown Antioch was the place to be this Saturday. This free event is held each fall in the historic Rivertown district of Antioch. Although the the Antioch/San Joaquin Delta is by no means the most famous delta region associated with the blues, it is an area which has a large indigenous population of Blues fans, and as such has earned the right to hold a world class blues festival annually. Below is a short summary and a set of photos of each performance. Enjoy!
Tomorrow we will be downtown Antioch at Waldie Plaza for the annual (free) Delta Blues Festival. Here are some before photos of the plaza to put tomorrow’s pictures in perspective.
