Went walking a bit after 4 am here in San Francisco. Took myself up Twin Peaks and back down the other side. Them's as some hill work.

While up on the top, a very thin layer of cloud veiled the sky just a few hundred feet above me. The moonlight punched through it just fine, but the big television tower up there was bisected. As a result, the top of the tower was casting moonlight shadows down into the sky. Very weird, even vertiginous. I tried a shot with the iPhone, which shows a bit of what I saw:

Eerie beauty in the dark of the morning. The view up there is hella good in pretty much all directions, but that was an especially odd and intriguing sight.

I love the dark of the morning. Most of my best walks start before the light. Keep on putting one foot in front of the other, love, tj
