I was out in the Palo Alto Baylands around sunset taking photos near the Lucy Evans Badlands Nature Interpretive Center. By pure happenstance, I followed a trail around the bay that took me to this view of the Palo Alto airport. At first, I was focused on the sunset. However, I thought it would be neat to capture a plane landing in front of the setting sun.
This vista would probably be even more glorious at high tide. Thursday, November 27 looks good. 4:17 PM high tide with a 4:51 PM sunset. Unfortunately, that’s Thanksgiving day. Maybe in December.
