Spit at Sunset
I started planning the nights I could go for a look. I discovered I could eye a local webcam to gauge how the light was, and if the horizon was cloud-free. A few times in the past week or so, I was ready and able to go, but there was a disappointing cloud cover. I recommend that fellow photographers look to see if there are webcams available in key locations in your area!
I drove up the hill Saturday night for my test shot. Unfortunately, there was a rather unsavory person at the same lookout I was, so I did not stay long. The light got better after I left, so I may have to try again!
I would love to try again in the heart of summer, when the fireweed is blooming, but I don't know how feasible it will be!
