Sunday was cool and cloudy in the Bay Area, but today it was full-on Indian Summer. Unfortunately the cloudless sky was filled with a brownish haze that didn’t make for photogenic vistas of the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco. But it was such a warm afternoon I decided to head down to the water anyway, stopping at one of my favorite commute photo-taking stomping grounds, Fort Baker. Because the sky was unappealing, I looked for other views to fill the frame. I took several of these close-up shots of the fishing pier pilings reflecting on the water.
While I was focusing on the pilings this seal popped up to check me out. Fortunately, I had enough time to grab a quick shot before it swam off.
