Huntington Beach Sunset
On a work trip to California, I had occasion to stop by this place. The sight of oil platforms just off the coast is not a common one in Ireland, and something about the philosophical arrangement of the surfer's body and the light like an oilslick on the water caught my attention.
San Francisco from Treasure Island, under threatening skies.

Silicon Valley Night
Night has fallen over this view of Silicon Valley from on high.
The Stanford Dish
A radio telescope, still in active use, in the park grounds of the Stanford campus. A metal fence surrounds it. It was looking threatening outlined against dark skies.
