I had wonderful trip back to the Bay Area in Northern California. I recently purchased a used 17-55mm Canon lens for my Canon 70D. I was quite surprised with the quality of still images that this lens and camera setup produced. For not being a full frame (sensor) camera, it still generated some impressive images shooting in RAW. I took a trip out to the Oakland Hills and watched the sunset over the bay with a couple friends as we camped out on the grass. In the distance you can see the whole bay with a slight haze covering the Bay Bridge and the Golden Gate. The light provided in this evening was truly heartwarming and stunning. In these images I hope you will feel the profound emotions of the magical love and affection Mother Nature provides us humans beings, and appreciate how beautiful of a world we step foot on everyday.
