As the sun sets, winds often stops, then shifts from on to offshore. The breeze can be warm and gentle or brisk and spirited. Lights of the city come on and boats turn on their running and special purpose lights. The Port of Oakland lights up. All together the lights look like Stars on the Water.
If able to take night shots these are very unique views for the photographer.
If you'd like to get night certified - this is an excellent chance to begin to see and understand what is coming at you in the night.
