Into the Sun (click image for other size views)

Shooting directly into the sun near sunset often produces interesting effects. In this case the golden look over the stark shapes at the edge of the Marina in Mission Bay California. It looks as though I toned the image, but I did not. It is simply an effect of the lighting and the tight cropping of the fairly long zoom setting.

What caught my eye was the repeating shapes of the catwalks leading down to the docks and the way the sun was catching them.
