Thank you very much for your kind words. I wish I could take awesome outdoor photos like yours...I wish I have the talent and patience...getting up in the early morning for twin peaks...wow! I hesitate to make such trip due to it is always so cold...
Hehe I learned the hard way about the cold on Twin Peaks. Lived 14 years in Montreal Canada with a false sense of pride in weathering the cold. Went to California expecting warm temperatures and just brought a light jacket *in case* LOL Even laughed at the idea of bringing gloves, but now I'm paying the price with a lingering case of the sniffles! Was well worth it though, I got to enjoy a wonderful overview of San Francisco from pitch black to soft gold warmth
Gotta love the culture too, people seem a lot more laid back versus here in the Washington DC area. I found myself renting a camera body in San Carlos at the last minute because I made the stupid mistake of bringing my older camera with me, and while I was filling out the application this huge white dog started wandering around fraternizing with the customers. At the time I figured it was a resident store pet, but no it just casually walked in from outside and the store employees kept it entertained until the dog owner came in 10 minutes later to claim it hah!
Mark Twain -The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco. The coldest winter I ever saw was the summer I spent in San Francisco. it is funny, it does not matter who is coming to San Fransisco, at anytime of the year, my advise has always been "bring a jacket. and i don't mean a windbreaker".
San Carlos is about 10 minutes south from where i live, i go to San Carlos' newly renovated library each week, a very nice town indeed. i love where i live, it is so close to everything...people are nice, weather is super nice and every single giant technologies companies in the world.
Moral of the story, I should have brought something more than a windbreaker LOL Back in DC now and had the foresight to bring my thick & heavy winter coat from Montreal in time for they what they called the Deep Freeze for temperatures in the single digits (ie a typical winter day in Canada!)
