Bliss Dance, Part I

Bliss Dance, Part I

Treasure Island, San Francisco

From a business trip to the Bay Area. I took my 5D Mark II and some L lenses on this trip.
This is a good reason why: aside from resizing, this is basically right out of the camera.

Bliss Dance is a 40 foot tall metal sculpture by
artist Marco Cochrane. More info at:

Here is a short video slide show of some of the images in this series:

Many thanks to Cedric Sims for pointing me to this
fantastic sculpture. Cedric's shots can be seen at:

With the city lights in the background, this is my favorite shot in this series. You have such a talent for the low light, night shots. Wonderfully done. V.

Exceptional! The golden orange tones of the bridge and the city in the background make such a a nice counterpoint to the gorgeous lavender of the sculpture and the deep dark blue sky. ~BV~
