On June 15th, I chased some promising clouds to Crocker Park and left one hour later with 13 images that I shared over the next few weeks. This panorama was made up of 16 vertical images captured with my widest lens at the peak of golden light (it would later shift to pink). Though I came away with 13 keepers, this is the best representation of the night and the numerous available compositions looking towards the mouth of the harbor and causeway.

For the perfect clouds, perfect light and the joy of feeling like a kid in a candy store with compositions all over the place (including behind me), ‘Panoramic Gold’ is my 7th favorite image of 2021.
