There is something about the crisp fall evenings in San Francisco that can just hit you the right way. The design director for SF Weekly was leaving so we all headed to the Hotel Utah on 4th and Bryant Streets for a goodbye party. Right as I was about to enter the bar there, I noticed that the eastern sky was turning the most lovely shade of pink. The 3.2 megapixel camera on my Blackberry doesn't quite capture how cool it felt, with the noise of the traffic and the city, but I knew I wanted to document that moment. What a beautiful town I am lucky to work in! Please also click on my Flickr stream for a close look at all the photos I've been taking lately from my Blackberry.

    That pink sky is called "alpen glow" and yes it's VERY hard to capture on a camera. I think the best aplen glow is up in Alaska in the dead of winter when the sun sets on the stark white scenery all around. GORGEOUS. Thanks for sharing and taking me back to one of the rare pleasant memories of living in frigid Anchorage. Have a great day!
