Photoset: James Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton
This was my first photo adventure of the new year. We went to the James Lick Observatory on Mt. Hamilton, which is located in the hills above San Jose, Ca. The road leading up to the observatory is very narrow and twisty. I am still getting over my fears of driving on that kind of road. I am planning to drive down California Highway 1 in the spring for a photo adventure. The photo above was shot toward the end of our adventure as the sun was going down.
The colors on the observatory as the sun went down were rich and magnificent. I will definitely bring a pair of gloves with me next time. The temperature was 33 degrees at the observatory. I had since experienced cold and wind like that since the last time I was in Chicago during the winter.
