nice, pleasanton does have some great sunsets, especially around the hills
I think that it is a very refreshing thing that you posted this beautiful picture, just to share....what a nice change from all the hatred and back and forth going around...thank you...beauitful shot, please share more....
I agree something positive...a breath of fresh air. Too bad not more people can't be this enlightened and share the beauty of the area...
Yes, it's such a breath of fresh air to see all the dirty air hovering over Pleasanton illuminated in the photograph. Keep driving people, or else we'll lose such "beauty."
I guess you would rather have photographs of graffiti, etc!
Its people like you....eye of the beholder...that makes negatives out of anything positive...lighten up! Or get a life!
"Dirty air hovering over Pleasanton illuminated in the photograph"???
Looks like fog/clouds to me.
I think eye of the beholder means that the reason the sunsets are so red and orange is because as the sun moves towards the horizon, the light must go through more and more of the atmosphere. If the atmosphere has many particulates in it, like CO2, then there is too much stuff blocking the light to travel. Meaning that the high frequency of the blue light doesn't travel as far as the low frequency of the red light, so the result is that we see the more reddish colors of white light than the bluish colors.
It's just basic high school physics.
