  1. Absolutely splendid display, Jane.

  2. Those are some amazing skies. I especially like the composition of the 2nd photo. Winter sunsets are nice because you don’t have to stay out so late to capture them.

  3. Those are beautiful sunset skies. We haven’t had much of those of late. Mostly, the gray kind or snowy kind. It just turns dark instead. Goodnight GGB, an absolute beauty.

  4. A gorgeous sky and cityscapes! Good thing you were there to capture it and create these stunning images!

  5. All these images are beautiful. But Golden Gate Goodnight image is best I like.

  6. Absolutely gorgeous! So much beauty.

  7. Those are drop-dead gorgeous. Any idea what may be behind all that color?

  8. the first photograph is impressive with these trails of clouds, we could think of an “end of the world” or on the contrary … a renewal (cleaner, more beautiful, less difficult for people …)

  9. Wow, you’ve been having some nice sunsets lately! So much color! I always like the way you incorporate the city, so the second photo is my favorite. πŸ™‚

    • Hi Lynn, And all this past week. Great conditions, thank you. That second shot is a fave, too. πŸ˜‰

      • In that photo there’s just the right amount of information in the lower (buildings) part, I really like that. And the sky is strangely mottled. We’ve been stuck with a lot of rain, and gray but we needed the rain. The mountain snowpack is now above normal, so that’s good. The daily increase in light is very apparent, and I’m grateful for it but I could go for more sun!

  10. These photographs are so beautiful! Thank you for sharing!

  11. Beautiful images, Jane – Sutro Tower is my choice >>> and also very much like that format, and in Bay Area Beauty too. A πŸ™‚

  12. I don’t have the words… simply spectacular. Lucky you to be graced with such heavenly Ε‘Δ·iest.

  13. Beautiful series Jane! City Hills is my fav. 😊

  14. Wonderful captures, Jane! Love all those layers of color.

  15. WOW!!! Loved the colors and the light in these images, Jane! My favorite is Reaching. Absolutely stunning!!

  16. Red has a lot of power; great set! πŸ™‚

  17. Lovely! I think “Sunset Layers” has to be my favourite. Enjoy your Sunday.

  18. Stunning skies Jane – what a week you had! Well captured of course.

  19. These are stunning. I hope my kids saw them!

  20. Every one a beauty and so powerfully colorful, Jane. Is this from a specific nearby location or several within the city?

  21. hi jane, wonderful photographs, your sunsets they have a great color which you will often find on the pacific.
    greetings robert

  22. Beautiful! And what a magnificent perch from which to view.

  23. Incredibly dramatic skies Jane, superbly caught.

  24. These sunsets are gorgeous Jane.

  25. Stunning! – the city – would make a wonderful painting

  26. Beautiful! I like the slightly-volcanic-looking first shot, it looks like there’s all sorts of forces at play overhead. And all of these shots from one week!

  27. Gotgeous Jane, you are everywhere, So lucky…

  28. What a sight at the end of the day. Beautiful!

  29. Great sunsets. Is winter generally the best time for them there?

    I just learned from an article in the Smithsonian magazine that it was John C. FrΓ©mont, the explorer and first Republican presidential candidate (right before Lincoln), who gave the Golden Gate its name.

    • Thanks, Steve. I think the winter sunsets are more vivid with less fog or haze from the heat.
      Yes, that’s interesting about the name. Of course in 1846, he was naming the opening to the bay that leads to the ocean.

  30. Stunning, Jane. What can I say – cities are not my cup of tea, but the City Hills with that sky is just marvelous!

  31. Brilliant ❣️ have another beautiful day Jane ~ smiles Hedy

  32. Breathtaking. I know when I see a sky like that I’m as giddy as a child and I can’t stop shooting. Thanks for brightening my Saturday morning.
