Beautiful sunset at Lands End.

A few weekends ago, mi friend muffin +I were fortunate to capture the last bits of this purple wicked sunset. And to top it off, the full moon was brighter than ever behind us. Amazing.





I've added a map image [or Google map it] of the location, for those of you outside of the Bay Area. Those flooded-looking squares are the remains of the historical Sutro baths and home to San Francisco's only river otter (Sutro Sam).

With the rather strange nice weather we had in February, without much rain at all, I have frequented the Lands End Trail & Sea Cliff area quite frequently. If you haven't been out there recently, the Lands End lookout was completed in April, last year. It is a great spot to also bring local +visiting friends, a date, family or come by yourself. There is coffee & ice cream in the visitor's center, plenty of restrooms, in addition to a camera obscura, a labyrinth +one of the best and most panoramic time-outs you can treat yourself to, in the northwest region of the City. Anyways.

The power of the ocean is infinite.

  1. Beautiful photos. Deep purple. Very nice.

    Easily one of my favorite places in SF if not the entire Bay Area. Seen many a sunset there.

    20 years ago, the trail was open for bikes (is it still?), and you were also able to hike down to some of the rocks - last time I went, this was fenced off and highly discourage. There is one rock formation that juts out into the sea that provided a great view of the East Bay Hills. Loved seeing the sun reflecting off the windows there.

    Will make a trip out there again soon! Sutro Baths too. And what is the name of that little red shack with food and drinks?

  2. Beautiful, as always. Thanks for sharing.
    We've also had a lovely February - I've put more bicycle miles in during Feb than each of the previous four months. Lets hope it stays this nice for a little while.
