Lawrence Hall of Science, Berkeley, CA

The Lawrence Hall of Science is a children’s science museum in Berkeley, California. Located in the Berkeley Hills, it offers a beautiful panoramic view of the San Francisco bay. Used an ND filter to smooth out the spray of the fountain.

At 4:22 PM, the view was nothing spectacular, especially with the atmospheric haze.

By 5:38 PM, the sun dropped right behind the Golden Gate bridge and rendered the cityscape into a sepia-toned monochrome.

By 5:52 PM, the sun was going, going, gone…

Then began the long wait for the city lights to flicker on. Since this was over President’s Day weekend, I wasn’t sure if the office buildings would be lit at night. However, by 6:35 PM, Bay Area was aglow. From my vantage point, it was hard to tell whether the lights in San Francisco were on or not because they were so faint.
