In the winter, just after the sun goes down, and the sky turns that deep shade of blue, it is a different kind of magic hour. My Grandmother used to call it l'heure blu, or the hour of blue.
It's hard to capture and usually involves being cold. None the less, I find it a regal time of day.

Its interesting what beauty one can find first thing in the morning. I think I can find beauty most anywhere at that time of day.

The Bennie Bufano Seal statue off the Sausalito Shoreline, Dawn. Marin, California


FROM WIKIPEDIA:

Beniamino Benvenuto Bufano (October 14, 1898 - August 16, 1970) was a California-based Italian American sculptor, best known for his large-scale -- usually granite -- monuments. His modernist work often featured smoothly rounded animals and relatively simple shapes.

Bufano was born in San Fele, Italy, but was brought to the United States by his family at the age of three. He spent his childhood in New York City and was educated by private tutors, eventually studying at the Arts Student League from 1913 to 1915. He first came to San Francisco to work on a sculpture for the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition, alongside Dirk Van Erp. Afterwards, he traveled extensively before returning to settle permanently in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Considered an outspoken radical at the time, Bufano chopped off his trigger finger and sent it to President Woodrow Wilson at the onset of World War I as a protest against the war. In addition to his work as a sculptor, he taught at the San Francisco Institute of Art (but was dismissed in 1923 because he was considered too modern), the University of California, Berkeley, and Oakland's California College of Arts and Crafts.

Some of his best-known works include the statue of Chinese leader Sun Yat-sen in San Francisco's Chinatown, his 93-foot (28 m) sculpture Peace in coastal Timber Cove (near Jenner, California) and his Bear and Cubs at Kauikeaouli Hale in Honolulu, Hawaii. Examples of his distinctive and large-scale work can be found throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and there is a Bufano Sculpture Garden at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland.

Sometimes I am a little slow on the draw. This great picture of an Escape from Alcatraz swimmer was taken by Sophie Aissen
for SFBAYIMAGES.com last summer. We took a morning expedition to hear the 2000 swimmers in the water. Our hopes were dashed by the helicopter over head performing photojournalism, which turned out to be a friend that later in the day needed to be rescued from an emergency landing in the Marin Headlands. It was a busy, day, which is why the image never got posted.

Exploring Point Reyes - Northern California Coast
8000 Acres of Natural Seashore + Rolling Grasslands Beauty
Atmospheric Art for creating background ambience.
Digital version of the coffee table photography book

DESCRIPTION:
Exploring Point Reyes - Northern California Pacific Coastline

Welcome to Point Reyes Seashore, . From crashing surf to the lighthouse that has guided mariners, to remote beaches and marine wildlife, to waterfalls meeting the pacific ocean to open expanses of grasslands and fogged in forested ridges and then views from above overlooking it all, this DVD explores Point Reyes Seashore. Fine art photography by award winning bay area photographer, Sandra Cannon, combined with an ecletic world cinematic style score, this 30 minute piece has an atmosphere of the natural rugged elegance of the historic seaside area. The music track is a relaxing fusion of world ambient light music with celtic and indigenous people influences like the sample song, music not necessarily associated with Point Reyes but on the level of inspirational scenary and atmospheric sense. The music also reflects the early marine explorers, settlers, native peoples, California hippies and those of us now discovering it.

The Point Reyes Peninsula is rich in biological diversity. Over 45% of North American bird species have been sighted in the park, and close to 20% of California's plant species grow here. The park was established by President John F. Kennedy in 1962. From macro photography to aerial, "Exploring Point Reyes" is an excellent gift for you or your friends.
