Counting down to Halloween on this gloomy Tuesday morning, let’s stroll through Autumn, Ray Bradbury’s country.
I hope you’ll enjoy these photos as I do, taken between the beaches of San Francisco, Golden Gate Park and the Shoreline at Mountain View, CA.
“That country where it is always turning late in the year. That country where the hills are fog and the rivers are mist; where noons go quickly, dusks and twilights linger, and midnights stay. That country composed in the main of cellars, sub-cellars, coal-bins, closets, attics, and pantries faced away from the sun. That country whose people are autumn people, thinking only autumn thoughts. Whose people passing at night on the empty walks sound like rain.”
Previously, I posted some of our sunrise photos from Shoreline Park in Mountain View. Part one is here and part two can be found here. This time around, I’m sharing photos from elsewhere in the park: Rengstorff House and the beautiful and historic area around it .
Since Lastech has been working graveyard shift, we have adjusted our sleeping habits and now we’re able to get up early and go out to see the sunrise. Not long ago, Lastech managed to take some wonderful photos. The sky was beautiful with vivid pastel colors.
Last week, Lastech and I went off to watch a sunrise. He took me to the area where he took his last group of pics. It’s called Shoreline at Mountain View. It is home to a lot of birds. It’s full of birds during the migration season. We plan to go back to take advantage of it.
South of San Francisco is the town of Mountain View. In 1956 the first company to develop silicon semiconductor devices was located there. The area is now known as Silicon Valley. Shoreline Park is built on an old landfill. It features an artificial lake and golf course. It has many trails and is adjacent to the bird sanctuary.
Here are a few photos taken by Lastech at sunrise.
