    Yesterday as many of you know Super Bowl took place in Santa Clara, south of San Francisco...while most people were partying with their friends and family and watching it on TV...I went out to take some picture around sunset...the score was 10-0 Broncos when I left :)

    [1] Got there after a nice hike and saw this beautiful glow of the city.

    Very good as usual, Quick question, how did you get there? Because when I did my trip to SF, I tried to go at the same spot but I only achieved to see blocked roads with private proprities and "military signs"...

    Thank you Jo...I wouldn't recommend anyone to go their by themselves who doesn't know the area. It does involve some trespassing since the area has changed into a private property in development. There are a few way to access there, but the easiest way is having someone drive you there and drop you off by the side of the road that is just above the bridge (
    , then you just hop over the side rail and hike down...once you are done have the same person to come pick you up.

    Great shots as always Nam. Probably my favorite part about these is that they were shot with an "old" E-M5 and PL25. It goes to show that even old m43 gear can create stunning images (and that it's always about subject, framing, and light more than it is the gear).

    Thank you @ijm5012@ijm5012. Indeed, it was taken by my old and falling apart E-M5. What I love about the PL25 for this kind of shot is the starburst that it produces, one of the best...only the Voïgtlander 25mm F0.95 can produce better. I totally agree with you about the subject, framing, and light.

    Fantastic. Those are great shots, well executed and very appealing in so many ways. You nailed it. Best of all, you didn't miss anything on TV! I should've done the same, though I had a good waste of time with good friends.
