At the last exit on my commute home I get off the highway, head towards town, and there’s a roundabout for a new housing development. Halfway around the roundabout is the turn towards this end of the road scene at the Petaluma river.

Along a stretch of Hwy 101 called the “Novato Narrows” the highway slims down to two lanes in either direction. Heading north along the Narrows drivers pass the Gnoss Field airport, Olompali Park (where the Grateful Dead once had a haunt), the Redwood Sanitary Landfill (aka, the dump), and eventually the Marin/Sonoma County line. About a mile from the county line, on the east side of the highway, is this view.

It’s storming in the Bay Area this week. Today, for kicks, I decided to go all the way to the top turnout on the Headlands and grab some images of the bridge in rainy weather. Well, the rain was there too. I managed to take three quick shots. This was the second. The third showed too many raindrop splotches.

Across the road from where I work, at the southern end of San Francisco Bay, there are salt marshes bordered by salt ponds which are in turn bordered by industrial parks. This is the view looking north. The hill is San Bruno Mountain which looms over the north side of South San Francisco.

Because of my commute route I have the opportunity to shoot a lot of photos of the Golden Gate Bridge. But, because I’m commuting, the vantages are limited by my desire to get home. Fort Baker is a fave for easy off, easy on the highway.
