I live downtown and one of the best things about living here is the Embarcadero with the walking path right along the harbor. It has a great view and in the mornings I often go for a run or a walk here.
I caught this spectacular sunset in October, when we had a very unusual weather pattern. The skies to west were completely clear with absolutely no marine layer, but in the south we had some dense cloud cover. You can never be sure when dealing with the weather, but I thought that since the marine layer was absent, the sun would ignite the clouds so I came out to the north end of the Embarcadero. I was not dissappointed.
