That Cypress Grove above the Golden Gate in San Francisco

Cypress Grove - San Francisco - 2013

I had a wonderful time this morning visiting one of my favorite spots in San Francisco – the Palace of the Legion of Honor – and the amazing exhibition currently running of the work of Swedish painter Anders Zorn. If you haven’t been, you must go – his work is just superb. I’ve never seen watercolors like he painted!

As I was heading back to the car, I noticed this view overlooking the golf course – with a view of this cypress grove. This early December low sun angle light makes almost everything look wonderful to my eye – but this was even more special. Ming Thein, a Kuala Lumpur-based photographer who’s taught me a lot, starts with “Start by finding interesting light.” This was special light.
