Sunset from Turtle Hill, 20 April 2014 (Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top)


Good Evening:

Wind rising, temperatures dropping–what are these folks doing on the top of Grand View Park, also known as Turtle Hill? (all pictures totally unedited)

Oh, this must be why they assembled:


Grand View/Turtle Hill became quite popular at sunset over the weekend. I came here after attending the Georgia O’Keeffe retrospective at the De Young Museum in Golden Gate Park. I didn’t know that much about her work, but the similarities between some of her paintings and some of my photographs astounded me–can I sue her for plagiarism 90 years before the fact?

Here are two shots of the same scene, the first using the Nikon Landscape Mode, the second using the Dusk/Dawn Mode.

Finally, the reason we stayed and shivered:

We applauded.
